At the suggestion of many Subscribers to the original quarterly publication 
of " Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," the present work was started to 
appear under the same Title, but at more frequent intervals, and at a reduced, 

The Editor has every reason to be satisfied with the reception which has 
been accorded to the present volume ; and it is not proposed to prolong the 
existence of the larger Miscellany beyond Volume II., which is now nearly 
completed. It may be convenient to state, in this place, that the Quarterly 
and Monthly series have been kept quite distinct as regards their contents. 
There has been no reprinting. 

The number of Subscribers continues to increase, and it is gratifying to 
the Editor to find that his labours are appreciated not only in this country 
but also in the United States. It was, indeed, to be expected that a pe- 
riodical containing so large a proportion of inedited matter, extracts from 
church registers, tabular pedigrees and the like, illustrating the descent 
and arms of the more modern British families, should be found deserving 
yj of encouragement by those zealous students of genealogy whose number is 

daily increasing in the older English settlements of North America. 
>\ The Volume now completed will be found to contain many original 
^ documents of interest, and in particular several early wills, grants of arms, 
and notes of curious deeds and seals, presenting, it is hoped, attractive matter 
to the antiquarian public in general. 

To all those friends whose contributions so liberally placed at his disposal 
have materially furthered the design, the Editor for himself, and on the part 
of the whole body of Subscribers, must offer his very cordial thanks. 

No efforts will be spared to render the continuation of the work deserving 
of the kind patronage which has been extended to the portion now completed.

The following memoranda^ relate to the family of Sir John Chapman, Kt., the well-known Lord 
Mayor of 1688, whose pedigree is very imperfectly exhibited in the Baronetages. Lord Macaulay 
(Hist, of England, ii. 557) graphically describes the fatal agitation of the Lord Mayor when Lord 
Chancellor Jeflreys was dragged before him, in the riots which followed the abdication of King 
James, although he omits to mention his name. He says, " The Mayor was a simple man, who had 
passed his whole life in obscurity, and was bewildered by finding himself an important factor in a 
mighty revolution. The events of the last twenty-four hours, and the perilous state of the City 
which was under his charge, had disordered his mind and his body. When the great man, at whose 
frown, a few days before, the whole kingdom had trembled was dragged into the justice-room be- 
grimed with ashes, half-dead with fright, and followed by a raging multitude, the agitation of the 
unfortunate Mayor rose to the height. He fell into fits and was carried to his bed, whence he never 
rose." It may be doubted, however, whether Macaulay has done justice to the political experience 
of Sir John Chapman, for Sir John was one of the six aldermen of London, who were displaced in 
1687 for opposing the address in favour of the Declaration of Indulgence ; and his contemporary 
Dr. Scott, the Rector of St. Giles-in-the-Fields, praises in high terms the wisdom and prudence of 

# The arms on seal are those of Penn impaling Springett, William Penn having married — at 
Chalfont, in 1672 — Gulielma Maria, daughter of Sir William Springett. His first wife died 23rd 
February, 1694. In 1696 he married Hannah, daughter of Thomas Callowhill, of Bristol. 

f The Condicon of this Obligacon is such that wheras at the Intermarrage of the aboue bound 
William Penn with Hannah daughter of the above named Thomas Callowhill he the said William 
Penn then had and since hath receiued of and from the said Thomas Callowhill divers sums of Money

The Family of Trevor, etc.* — Since writing the account of the above family 
in the pages of your truly valuable and interesting miscellany, I beg leave to correct 
a mistake I made at p. 79 and to append a few further particulars. At p. 79 I stated 
that Justin MacCarthy married secondly a daughter of Sir Thomas Hawes, Knt., 

* ' Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' vol. i. pp. 78-80. 



of London. Now Justin was a member of the family of MacCarthys of " Gleann 
a-Chroim," or the " Vale of Crom," and it was his brother Denis (eldest son of 
Denis MacCarthy, Esq., of co. Cork, and of Squire's Mount, Harnpstead, by his 
cousin Mary), who was father of Sir Charles Justin, Governor of Ceylon. Sir 
Charles married, in 1848, Sophia Brunei, eldest daughter of Sir Benj. Hawes, 
K.C.B., Under Secretary of War (M.P. for Lambeth 1832-47 and for Kinsale 
1848-52). He was appointed Auditor- General of Ceylon in 1847, Colonial Secre- 
tary of that island 1852, Governor in 1860, and died October, 1804. Daniel, nephew 
of Charles Justin, author of the ' Life and Letters of Florence MacCarthy Reagh, 
Tanist of Carbery,' married Harriet, daughter of Admiral Sir Home Popham. 

James MacCarthy, a Lieutenant in the 21st (Royal North British Fusiliers) 
regiment of the line, died at Barbadoes, January 23, 1842, leaving issue by his 
wife, Isabella Gowland, four sons and a daughter, viz. 2, Edward Fredk. Augustus, 
late of II.M.'s 21th (2nd Warwickshire) and 35th (Sussex) regiments ; 4, Thomas 
James, born 1840, died of cholera at Morar Gwalior in 1861 ; 5, James Justin; 
1, Henrietta Louisa, born 1835, died 1838; 3, Eliza Sarah Ann, married, in 1865, 
Dr. Glen, a surgeon to the Indian Government. The father of James MacCarthy 
was Edward, born 1768, married Sarah Bull, at St. Ann's, Westminster, 29th 
November, 1789. He served in the 50th (West Kent, or Queen's Own) regiment, 
and afterwards as Assistant Engineer of the Third Division, under Lieut.- General 
Sir Thos. Picton, and was severely wounded at the storming of Badajos, at the 
storming of Eort Napoleon, Almarez, and the battle of Corunna. He had issue, — 
1, Sarah, born May 15, 1793. died at Slough, April, 1865, unmarried ; 2, Edw. 
Denis, born June 24, 1795, died of dysentery and fever while Lieutenant com- 
manding 1500 men in the bush against the Ashantees, buried at Cape Coast Castle, 
married ; 3, William Justin, born July 24, 1797, late 84th (York and Lancaster) 
regiment, retired Lieut.- Colonel, now living at Bedford, married ; 4, James born 
24 August, 1801, died of yellow fever at Prince Rupert's Bay, Dominica, December, 
1841, while serving as Lieutenant in the 3rd West India regiment. 

Dr. MacCarthy. another member of the same family, now or latterly resided at 
Wellington, Salop.

Chuech Register.— I have in my possession part of a church register, and 
give a short description of its contents, since I am anxious to restore it to the 
book from whence the leaf has been torn out. 

The fragment when folded forms four narrow folio pages, the first entries 
being, — 

" October 1670. the wife of M r Jeames Whelar was buryed the 21 day. 
" October 1670. from the Swann. John Maynard was buryed the 26 day." 

I extract a few others : — 

" December 1670 John Rennolds was buryed the 9 day. 

" Jeames the son of Jeames Wheler was buryed the 29 day. 
" January, the wife of Edward Cotwell was buryed the 25 day. 
" Abrill 1671 Mary the wife of Abell Stannard was buryed the 6 day. 

" Lawrante ffinch was buryed the 22 day. 
" July Rose Wilbe widdo was buryed the 24 day. 

" Elisebeth daughtar of Jeames Harrison by Rose his wife was buryd the 
28 day. 

"August Johanna Osborne widdo was buryed the first day." 

On satisfactory proof being furnished, I will, with pleasure, restore the frag- 
ment to its proper place.

Easttiy.— (1.) In the List of the Vicars of the Parish of Eastry there is a gap be- 
tween the year 1455, when John Craller, Rector of Hartleport, dioc. Lincoln, ex- 
changed with Robt. Dekyn, Vicar of Eastry (Reg. Bouch. f. 60 b, Lambeth), and the 
year 1517, when Richard Maister was collated to the vicarage, then vacant by the 
death of the last incumbent, — name not mentioned (Reg. Warh. f. 363 b) ; and 
although I have been able to fill up this gap partially with "Sir" William Craller in 
1479 and Master Thomas Aschowe in 1487, from wills, yet still there remains a gap 
between 1507, when Aschowe died, and 1517, when Maister was instituted. Can 
you or any of your readers supply the name of the missing vicar ? 
a.d. 1455, John Craller. 

In 1479, " Sir " William Craller ; died 1487. 
a.d. 1487, Master Thomas Aschowe ; died 1507. 

a.d. 1517, Richard Maister, S.T.B. 

(2.) Again, Thomas Sawyer was appointed vicar in 1553 (Hasted), and John 
Lawson in January, 1557, o.s. (Reg. Pol. f. 76 a) ; but in the same register, Robert 
Hill, who resigned, is mentioned as the predecessor of Lawson. Query, in what 
year was Hill collated to Eastry ? 

(3.) Also, in what year was Peter Lymiter (whose name and date of death, 
a.d. 1580, we gather from the parish register) appointed ? 

(4.) Can you give me any information respecting the family of Samuel Nicols, 
appointed Vicar of Eastry 1590, died 1638/9 ? He seems to have been possessed 
of some land in the parish, as he is mentioned in an old rental of 1633, and in the 
terriers also, as the owner of lands adjoining the glebe. His daughter married 
one of the Paramors of Statenborough. I judge from the fact of his having 
bought (?) or inherited (?) lands in the parish that he must have been a man of 
property, and perhaps also of family. Prior to his being Vicar of Eastry, he 
appears to have been Rector of Little Mongeham in 1588. 

If you or any of your correspondents can throw any light on the matters above 
mentioned, I shall be very glad. W. F. S. 

Frodsham. — Formerly a small bell was suspended outside the tower of Frods- 
ham Church, Cheshire, and was called the " Dagtale " Bell, being rung (immediately 
after the ordinary bells had ceased ringing) by a man, posted at a window or opening 
in the tower, when he saw the vicar coming to celebrate service. What was the 
origin of the practice, and word " Dagtale"? 

2. Under the battlements on the east face of the same tower is a tablet, in 
relief, containing the letters " iSfjO "; what do they signify ? On the south side 
of Kirkby Malgdale (Craven?) Church-tower are the letters " G- NR." The ages 
of all are perhaps of about the fifteenth century, — maybe much earlier. Double 
Christian names were unknown, otherwise these initials might have belonged to 
some builder or restorer of the churches. Is it possible they are the initials of 
the several surnames of restorers ? 

3. Can any correspondent refer me to any evidence of the founder of the family 
of Sir Christopher Hatton, K.G., being brother of Nigel, first Baron of Halton, 
Cheshire, and of such family being descended, maternally, from the old Counts of 
Britagne and Dukes of Normandy ? 

4. I am also desirous of knowing of what family were the Downes of Manby 
(Lincoln) and Stockwell (Surrey), John the Regicide being of this stock.

The readers of the Chapman Pedigree (printed at page 6) will have observed that Sir John 
Chapman, the Lord Mayor, and his son Sir William, both married into the family of Webb, & that 
their wives were descended from a sister of Sir Henry Wood, Kt. and Bart., of Loudham Park, in 
Suffolk. Sir Wm. Chapman was one of the Directors of the South Sea Company, and his estate 
was confiscated by Parliament in 1721, on the collapse of that unfortunate scheme : but his sons 
inherited considerable wealth from their mother's family. Sir Henry Wood, by his will and settle- 
ment, both dated in May, 1671, had settled his great estates in Suffolk on his daughter Mary, after- 
wards Duchess of Southampton, in strict settlement ; with remainder to his brother Thomas, Bishop 
of Lichfield, in tail ; with remainder to his sister Lady Mary Chester in tail male ; with remainder 
to his sister Elizabeth Webb in tail male ; with remainder to his own right heirs. On the death of 
Charles Cranmer, alias Wood, Esq., in September, 1743, the last tenant in tail under these limita- 
tions, the ultimate remainder to the heirs of Sir Henry came into effect, and the Wood estates were

Being at "Whitby last Saturday I got y r Letter in the Afternoon, & after

Robinson of Pickering who changed his name, from Strangways to 
Robinson, upon the Account of some Estate left him by an Uncle. 
1710. January 16 Margaret Strangeways buried. 

This Sir is all the account I can meet with at present of the family of the 
Strangwayes, either from the Parish Register or from Report, w ch I have Sent you 
to peruse ; if it does not prove Sufficient, only write me word, & I will use my best 
endeavours to procure from the Parish Register of Whitby, if I can but have the 
perusal of it : if not, I shall not know what to do ; for tho' their Parish Register 
is not so old as ours, yet it must be larger because of the Number of Inhabitants, 
& therefore will take up a great deal more Time. 

My wife joins with me in Compliments to you, M rs Strangwayes & y r Sister. 

I am, D r S r 

Y r most obedient humble Servant

owls argent, three guttees of the field. Crest : An owl argent, guttee sable. 

John Calverley, 4th son of Sir Walter Calverley, Knt., farmed the manor and 
rectory of Cockerham, co. Lane. He married a daughter of . . . Skilli- 
corne, of Prees Hall, co. Lane, Esq., and had issue — 
William Calverley, of Cockerham. He married . . . daughter of . . . Cans- 
field, of Robert Hall, in Tatham, co. Lane, Esq., and had issue — 
Thomas Calverley, lord of the manor of Cockerham. He married Isabel, 
daughter of William Kirkby, of Rawcliff, Esq., and had issue — 
John Calverte, alias Calverley, Esq., of whom hereafter. 
Thomas Calverte, of Forton, in the parish of Cockerham, whose de- 
scendants remained here until early in the eighteenth century, 
when this line appears to have ended in an heiress. 
John Calverte, alias Calverley, Esq., ob. 17 Jac. I. (1619-20), seized of the manor 
and rectory of Cockerham. He married Jane, daughter of Roger Dalton^ 
of Pilling, Esq , and had issue — 
Richard Calverte, eldest son and heir, set. 14, Visit. St. George, 1613. 
John Calverte, married Bridget, daughter of Thomas Stanley, of Great 

Eccleston, Esq., natural son of Henry, Earl of Derby. 
Anne, married Roger Downes, of Wardley, co. Lane, Esq. 
Jane, Bridget, Elizabeth, and Alice. 
The manor of Cockerham, parcel of the late monastery of Prees, in Leicester, 
was rated by the Crown, in 1557, for Thomas Calverte, in whose family it remained 
in 1650. 

Can any of your correspondents furnish me with further particulars and de- 
scent of this family ? 

Joseph Gillow, junior. 

Everard. — I am anxious to learn some particulars of the family of Everard. 
I find one buried at Bungay, in Suffolk, in 1658, and the latest date I can trace 
them to is 1665. One of them afterwards became Governor of North Carolina, 
under the lords proprietors. The arms were, argent a fesse wavy between three 





Ricii/vrd de Haldtnoiiam, ctrca 1300-20. — Any information relating to this 
former Prebendary of Hereford and Lincoln Cathedrals would be highly valued. 
He was the author of the celebrated ' Mappa Mundi ' preserved at Hereford, 
which will shortly be published. Is the time or place of his decease known ? 

Erancis T. Haver gal. 

Stones. — Rev. Samuel Stones, Curate of Saddleworth in 1768, appointed In- 
cumbent of Kawden, near Leeds, in 1780, and died there in 1823, aged 78. I am 
desirous of ascertaining where he was born, at what university and college he 
matriculated, and — as he is said to have had two wives, one named Bagshaw — the 
dates and places of marriage. 

James Busby. 

Manwood. — I am anxious to obtain some information respecting the Manwood 
family, seated at the commencement of the eighteenth century at Bromfield, in 
Essex. The signature and seal of John Manwood, of Bromfield, occurs on a deed 
in my possession, dated 30 October, 1704. Mention is made in this deed of Ka- 
therine, wife of the said John Manwood. 

A pedigree of the Manwoods is given in the Visitation of Kent, 1619, which 
ends with the issue of Peter Manwood, of St. Stephen's, Knight of the Bath, by 
Frances, daughter of Sir Greorge Hart, of Lullingston, Knt. On a seal used by 
Roger Manwood, eldest son of this Peter Manwood, the pallets are represented as 
engrailed. R. M. 

Lucas. — Can any of your readers give information respecting William Lucas, 
born in England (perhaps Essex) about 1640, and emigrated to Middletown, Conn., 
about 1660? 

James R. Lucas. 

St. Paul, U. S. of America. 

Portrait. — I possess an oil-painting, half length, 26 inches by 30, of a gen- 
tleman in wig and red gown, with long frill neckcloth and richly embroidered vest. 
In the dexter corner is the inscription, — 

" iEtatis suae 69 
Anno dom. 
Philo. Piscator." 

In the sinister corner is the remains of the coat of arms, Sable, a " Eret " argent ; 
crest, a talbot's head erased argent, collared and langued; motto ending " mo." 
Can any one give information as to whom the portrait might represent ? There 
is to be seen in Chipping Norton, Oxon, churchyard, a gravestone with the in- 
scription, — 

" Here lyeth the body of 
M r John Fisher Gent. 
Jan. 23 d An. Dom. 1658 
In Mare Myrtoum

Williams of Aberystruth, or Blaika Gwent, Monmouthshire. — The 
founder of this family was Caradoc ap Brane, or Cradocke Vraich-vras (strong arm), 
Duke of Gloucester, Earl of Hereford, Brecknock, and Radnor, Prince between 
the "Wye and the Severn, called by the Romans, Caractacus, King of the Silures. 
He married Tegiruron, daughter and sole heiress to King Pelinor, and drove the 
Scots and Picts out of all her dominions. The arms of Williams are — Sable a 
chevron between three spears' heads argent, embrued proper (denoting descent from 
Caradoc) ; on a chief of the second, argent a wyverne's head erased vert, langued 
gules, holding a sinister hand in its mouth proper, dropping blood (denoting de- 
scent from Pelinor). 

Oliver Cromwell comes down in a parallel line with this family from Sir Bichard 
Williams, whose sister married Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Henry VIII. 's Chancellor. 
This Sir Bichard Williams, after the execution of Lord Cromwell, assumed the 
name of Cromwell, and Oliver was his great grandson ; but Sir Bichard' s brother 
refused to change his name, and from him the present family are descended. 
Thomas, Lord Cromwell, had a sister, who married a Morgan Williams, whose son 
was ordered by Henry VIII. to take the name of Cromwell, and he became Sir 
Bichard Cromwell, and was the grandfather of Oliver Cromwell. The arms borne 
on the private carriage of Oliver Cromwell were the same as those which are borne 
by Williams. Williams of Llangibby formerly bore the same arms, but on mar- 
rying into the Adams family they have adopted the arms of Adams. 

Any information respecting the family of Williams whose ancestors resided at 
Havodavel, in the parish of Aberystruth, in the county of Monmouth, will be most 
thankfully accepted. 

Lawrence. — Can any of your readers tell me the name of the father and 
mother of Major- General Stringer Lawrence, who lies buried in Westminster 
Abbey ? He was born at Hereford in 1697. 



Ciiolmondeley Arms. — In an ancient pedigree roll, temp. Henry VII., or 
earlier, and in another ancient roll, being " Ye Kircke Role of ffrodesh' : of alle 
y c Seates yn the Kyrke of S. llaur'. ther' & y c Chapelles thereof in Vigil' Assenc' 
dom' Anno rr. Henrici septimi X.," are window- shields for several families be- 
longing to the parish and of others connected therewith : among them, Chol- 
mondeley, bearing " gules three garbs or." Anciently, I believe, the charges were 
(/ides two mitres or in chief and a garb or in base, and so I took the blazon on these 
rolls to be, until a closer inspection convinced me of the two chief charges being 
garbs and not mitres. Can any of your correspondents inform me of any other 
instance of a similar blazon ? The date of these would be about the opening of 
the fifteenth century in the one case, and as early as the beginning of the four- 
teenth century in the other. They are certainly intended for the Cholmondeley 
arms, and may have been borne some time before the two mitres were adopted, 
which in their turn were supplanted by the esquires' helmets.

Westcott Family. — The seal figured in the woodcut is appended to an inden- 
ture, dated 18 January, 1716, between " Mary Susanna "Westcott of the parish of 
S l Margaret in the liberty of Westminster, widow, "Relict and Executrix and De-

Chichester in the county of Sussex gentleman deceased late one of the Lieute-

Cosin - . Skinner. — In a pedigree of Dr. Cosin, Bishop of Durham, 1660-1672, 
in Surtees's ' History of Durham,' i. pt. i. p. cvi, it is stated that one of his sisters, 
Mary, married . . . Skinner. This lady appears to have been baptized at St. An- 
drew's, Norwich, 27 April, 1606. I wish to obtain proof of this marriage, as well 
as some further information regarding Mr. Skinner, and shall feel greatly obliged 
by any communication on both or either points addressed direct to myself. The 
marriage has been searched for at St. Andrew's, Norwich, but without success.

[The arms of Chester, as granted on 22 May, 1467, by William Hawkslow, 
Clarencieux, to William Chester, of London, were enclosed " within a bordure 
engrailed gules bezanty ; " but the bordure was disused by Sir John Chester, the 
fourth baronet, and his descendants, although it appears on the monument of his 
brother, Henry Chester, Esq., at East Haddon, who died in 1726. 

Sir Francis Chester is in all the baronetages confused with his son. He was 
the fifth son of Sir John Chester, fourth baronet, by Anne, daughter and coheir of 
Wm. Wollaston, Esq , and was born at Shenton Hall, in Leicestershire, the seat 
of the Wollaston family in 1693. He married, on 4 March, 1717-18, his cousin, 
Bethia Webb, of whom and her son full particulars will be found in the pedigree 
of Webb at page 15. On 25 May, 1755, he succeeded as the eighth baronet on 
the death of his nephew, Sir Charles Bagot Chester, but he did not succeed to the 
Chicheley estate, for it was alienated by the will of Sir Charles from the blood and 
family of Chester. Sir Francis survived his only child, and died a lunatic at 
Chelsea, 18 December, 1766. He was the last male descendant of the fourth 
baronet, and on the death of his cousin and successor, Sir Anthony Chester, the 
ninth baronet, 17 May, 1769, the male line of Chester became extinct.]

* This passage in Chauncy's ' Antiquities of Hertfordshire,' folio ed., p. 269, refers to the above 
monument: — 

"There is no Gravestone, nor other remark in this Church, (Bengeo), more than that Mr. Hum- 
phrey Hall, who had a fair House in this Parish, called Thomsons, where he lately died, and was 
buried in this Parish-Church ; his Executor as I am informed has provided a fair Marble to cover 
him ; but I could not obtain a sight of the Inscription, therefore cannot insert it ; however I ought 
to let the World know that he frequented the Church, was beloved by the Gentry ; just to his 
Neighbour, and Charitable to the Poor ; and by his Will dated 30 Jan, 1690, gave 501 to be laid 
out in a Purchase of Fifty Shillings per Annum to be paid Yearly to the Poor of this Parish.'' See 
also Salmon's ' History of Hertfordshire,' under Bengeo ; Clutterbuck's ' History of Co. Hertford,' 
vol. ii. p. 29. Thomsons was another name for Goldings, for in the Kegister of Burials at Bengeo, 
the interment of Humphrey Hall's wife I find thus entered :— " 1689. July 5. Mrs. Hall of 
Goldings alias Tomsins in y s Parish, Aff 1 ." 

The following entry is from an old parish book now at Bengeo : — 

"May y e 2 nd 1717. Memorand. Tis agreed at a vestry this day held y» y e vicar & churchwarden 
& overseers for y e poor of our par sh of Bengeo shall ha' power to employ a proper Attorney to sue 
for y e Legacy left to ye poor of our par sh by Humphry Hall Gent deceased." 

What may have been the result of this resolution I am unable to say ; but Humphrey Hall's 
charity is not now known in Bengeo.

My desire is that if my estate ever happens to come to the said Hospital that they 
will endeavour to have a tenant or other good person of my name (Hall) to live in 
Goldings house. Witnesses, Thomas Gouge, Jo Chauncy* Sen 1 ', John Chauncy 
Jim 1 ', Ann Handcock. Proved in the Prerogative court of Canterbury by Daniel 
Hall, 17 Dec r 1701. (Dyer 1G8.) 

The above cut is taken from the seal to the original will, and is curious as affording a presump- 
tion that it was of much older date than 1690. Humphrey was the son of Thomas, and grandson 
of John Hall, who respectively recorded their pedigrees at the Visitations of London in 1568 and 
1633. Vide ' Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' vol. ii. p. 255. In both the arms are entered 
as, argent three talbots' heads erased sable between nine cross crosslets gules. The seal of Hum- 
phrey Hall, however, altogether omits the cross crosslets, and shows merely the three talbots' heads 
erased. It is, however, evident that Humphrey did not purposely omit the cross crosslets ; for on his 
monument, now remaining in the old parish church of Bengeo, they appear plainly enough, and 
have been ever since used by his descendants. This naturally suggests the inquiry as to whether lie 
was entitled to the coat without the cross crosslets. Had the seal been engraved for Humphrey 
Hall, the omission of the cross crosslets might have been an error of the engraver ; but I incline to 
think this was not the case for two reasons : first, because the appearance of the impression is, in 
my opinion, that of a seal of older date than Humphrey Hall's time ; and secondly, because I can 
show some probability that he was descended out of a family who bore for arms three talbots' heads 
erased without the addition of ctoss crosslets. The cross crosslets may have been merely a mark of 
cadency assigned by the Heralds. The Halls of Henwick, co. Worcester, and of Leicestershire, who 
were of the same family, bore them azure instead of gules ; thus affording a strong presumption that 
they were differences added to the original coat for younger branches. 

John Hall, before mentioned, was son of Thomas Hall, of Warnham, co. Sussex, and I conjec- 
ture that he was one of the descendants of Richard Hall, of Howland, in Hoathley, co. Sussex, who 
bore, according to Harleian MS., 1484, fo. 67 b, argent three talbots' heads erased sable. This coat 
is given with different tinctures in Benolte's Visitation of Sussex in Coll. Arms.

These latter must have been living about the same time as Thomas of Warnham, and were of

tations, under Hall of Horsham, and Hawle of Ore, p. 289.) John Hall, grandfather of Hum- 
phrey, was of kin to a Thomas of Horsham,f but in what degree I have not as yet been able to 

* There was probably a connection between the Chauncys and Humphrey Hall. Anne, sister to 
Sir Henry Chauncy, married Henry Hall, of Poplar, who bore the same arms as Humphrey Hall. 
The Halls of Poplar I believe to have been descended from Daniell Hall, citizen and cloth worker, 
of London, who was buried at St. Nicholas Aeon, 25 June, 1625. He may possibly have been a 
brother of John Hall, of London, draper, who was grandfather of Humphrey Hall. I shall be glad 
of any information as to the Halls of Poplar, who were subsequently of Wickford, co. Essex, where 
they remained till the latter end of the last century.

[These inscriptions were discovered a few years ago on the occasion of rebuilding the church. 
The one commemorating William Vawdrey has since disappeared, but probably it may only be 
turned over. 

Owlerbarrow is distant about half a mile from Bowden Church, and is in the township of 

In 1761 the estate of Owlerbarrow was advertised for sale by the then owner, Mr. Thomas 
Ashley, and consisted of 24 acres, a pew in Bowden Church, and subject to a small chief rent of 
10c/. per year. The house is a plain building of brick, having been rebuilt shortly before 1761. 

Bank, or Bank Hall as it is now called, also in the township of Hale, is of brick, rebuilt about 
1761, but showing some slight remains of an older brick building. During some repairs, the date 
1607 was found on a beam, but was thoughtlessly thrown among the firewood and burnt. A portion 
of the moat still remains.]

me the names of the parents of this celebrated man ? They certainly lived at 
Derby, although John, their son, was born at Denby, a neighbouring village, 
whither, for a short time, they had fled from the plague. In the parish register of 
St. Alkmund's, Derby, occurs the following entry : — 

" 1654. Buryed Elizabeth the Wife of Mr. Steeven Elamsted." 

Query. — Were this Steeven and Elizabeth the parents of the astronomer? 
None of the biographies I have yet consulted give their names ; and (according to 
Lysons) the register at Denby has no record of John's baptism. He was born 
19 August, 1646.

Mauduit. — Can any of your readers give me a clue to the parentage of Isaac 
Mauduit, of Exeter, merchant, whose son, the Rev. John Mauduit, B.D., of Exeter 
College, Oxford, was Senior Proctor in 1649, and was one of the ejected ministers 
at the visitation of the Parliament and a sufferer among the royalists ? He after- 
wards had the living of Dr. Hammond, at Penshurst, Kent. At the Restoration, 
being obliged to quit this living, he went to his relations at Exeter and afterwards 
to Ottery St. Mary. He died in 1674. 

Was he connected with the Mauduits who came over with the Conqueror and 
one of whom was Earl of Warwick ?

The celebrated Major-General Philip Skippon commanded the infantry, for the 
Parliament, at the battle of Naseby, and was grievously wounded. He had £1000 a 
year lands of inheritance assigned to him by the Parliament. The Duke of Buck- 
ingham's estate at Bletchley, co. Bucks, was given him, but at the Restoration it 
reverted to the Crown. He had an estate at Foulsham, Norfolk, devised to him 
by his uncle, Win. Skippon, Esq., of Tavistock, co. Devon. 

The family Bible of the General is now the property of Nathl. Barnardiston, 
Esq., of the Byes, near Sudbury, Suffolk, and the numerous entries by the General 
and his son, Sir Philip Skippon, are, with his leave, copied from it. It is the quarto 
" breeches " Bible of 1610, ancient embossed black leather binding, with brass 
clasps, red lined, and texts very much marked under with ink, many of them appli- 
cate to the political as well as religious enthusiasm of the Skippons. 

In addition to the genealogical evidence given 'by the entries, it may be stated 
that the son, Sir Philip, was buried at Ketton, in Suffolk, 14 August, 1691, and his 
daughter Mary at the same time, with the ancestors of his second wife, the ancient 
family of Barnardiston. The only surviving son of Sir Philip by his first wife, 
sold the Foulsham estate, 1715, and was buried at Edwardstone,* Suffolk, 10 Sep- 
tember, 1716, as " Philip Skippon Esq re ." He appears to have been the last male 
of the name. 

The Major-General was son of Luke Skippon, who died 1638, and had another 
son, Luke, Vicar of South Lynn, Rector of Wissingset, Norfolk, and Master Elect 
of Peter House, Cambridge, whose four children named in Blomefield's ' Norfolk ' 
appear to have died without issue, and one not named, Susan, married Clement 
Heigham, Esq., and was buried at Barrow, Suffolk, 1695. 

Sir Philip Skippon married the niece of Saml. Barnardiston, the first Bound- 
headf who was created Baronet after the Restoration. It was for passages in 
letters to Sir Philip that Sir Saml. Barnardiston was impeached and tried before 
Judge Jeffreys, 1683, and fined £10,000, and long imprisoned. (See ' State Trials.') 
It is remarkable that on the trial no use appears to have been made of the fact 
that the intercepted letters were to his nephew, therefore the charge of " mali- 
ciously and seditiously " writing them was the more unreasonable. This case of 
oppression has lately been alluded to in the House of Lords, with reference to re- 
flections on Ministers of the Crown, in letters. 

In Ketton Church is a handsome mural monument for Sir Philip Skippon, with 
his arms quartering the arms of both his wives : — 

1 and 4. Skippon. Gules, five annulets, or. 

2. Brewster. Sable, a chevron between three etoiles, argent. 

3. Barnardiston. Azure, a fesse dancette ermine, between six crosses crosslet, 

The notes at the beginning of the Bible are written by Major-General Skippon 
and those at the end by his son Sir Philip. 

In extreamitate maxima me juvit et juvabit Jehovah. 

This Bible mentioned in my testament is for my sonne Luke Skippon, let him 
haue it. 

* Mary, daughter of Sir Thos. Barnardiston, Bart., sister to Anne, Lady Skippon, married 
Sir Josh. Brand, Kt., of Edwardstone, and there were several other marriages connecting the 
Skippons with the family of Brand.

Morton. — The marriage of Emanuel Morton, of Ackworth, Yorkshire, with 
Ann Bradley, of Bawtry, is recorded in the Bawtry registers. This marriage took 
place in January, 1656. Cornelius, their eldest son, was baptized November 5, 
1657, and Thomas, another son, was buried July 2, 1673. Ann Morton was buried 
April 9, 1679, being then a widow. 

I especially wish to ascertain the name of the father and mother of Emanuel 
Morton ; also date of baptism. Any entries from the Ackworth registers relating 
to this family will be most acceptable. 

William Morton, of Masham, who was baptized January 10, 1741, son of 
George Morton, of Babworth, co. Notts, by Ann Bingley, his wife, married, at

information as to the wife's surname and date of marriage.

Landman. — I shall be glad of any information respecting the family of Lang- 
man. Ralph Langman was created York Herald in 1567, and bore arms " Argent

Luff, John. — The following extract is taken from C. S. Gilbert's ' History of 
Cornwall,' vol. i. p. 135 ; I shall be glad to know of any library which contains the 
work in question : — 

"In 1604, John Luff, a retainer of Sir Remold Mohun, dedicated a small work 
on armoury, or heraldry, to his patron. It is in quarto, but of no great value, 
except for some arms of Cornish gentlemen, taken out of church-windows, etc., 
and not to be met with in any other work." 

W. Prideaux Courtney. 

Hyde, or Hide, of Finchley, Co. Middlesex. — I should be very glad to 
learn further particulars about this family, and especially whether it was a branch 
of Lord Clarendon's family. One member of it, Elizabeth Hyde, married, on the 
2nd of January, 1695, Richard Capper, of Lincoln's Inn, and died 26th of May, 
1727, in the fifty-second year of her age. The marriage allegations only contain 
the name of her mother, Elizabeth Hyde, then a widow and living at Einchley.

Hesketh Quarterings. — It may be worth noting that the quarterings of De 
Baux, Anjou, and Luxembourg, which form the twenty-third and twenty-fourth of 
the shield of Hesketh (' Miscellanea Genealogica,' Vol. II. p. 149) have no busi- 
ness there. Jaqueline of Luxembourg, Duchess of Bedford, and afterwards wife 
of Sir Richard Widvile, Lord Rivers, from whom so many English families descend, 
was not an heiress in blood. Her brother Louis, Constable of France, had issue 
Peter, who, by Mary of Savoy, left a daughter and sole heiress, Mary, wife of 
Francis de Bourbon. So long as any descendant of Henry IV. of France exists, 
no one descended from the Countess of Rivers can quarter the arms of Luxembourg 
in her right. Again, Margaret de Baux, wife of Peter de Luxembourg, was not 
an heiress in blood, nor was she daughter of Francis de Baux, by Beatrix of Anjou, 
but by Justine de Ursini, his third wife, and could have no pretensions to quarter 
the arms of Aniou.

Thompson.— Captain Edward Thompson, R.N., whose MS. Journal, 1783-1785, 
is noticed in the ' Cornhill Magazine ' for May, 1868, pp. 610-640, died 1 7th of 
January, 1786, aged 40, when Commander of the Grampus, and Commander-in- 
Chief of H.M. Squadron on the coast of Africa: supposed to be from Hull, or 
Beverley, or that locality. In his journal he speaks of a married " sister Wright," 
and of his "brother-in-law" and "half-brother, Christopher Pryme, of Hull." 
Any information as to his parentage, or family, etc., will oblige (by direct commu- 
nication with)

The Undeehills of New Place. — William Underbill, the owner of the 
house at Stratford-upon-Avon which afterwards became the residence of Shak- 
speare, was the second son of Edward Underbill, of Nether Eatington, in South 
Warwickshire. He was born in 1522 or 1523. His elder brother, Thomas, who is 
included by Fuller among the ' Worthies of Warwickshire,' was celebrated for his 
exemplary life, hospitable disposition, and (though last, not least) family of twenty 

The subject of the present notice having studied the law, became a member of 
the Inner Temple. He is incorrectly described as " Clerk " in a pedigree pre- 
served in the College of Arms. 

About 1544, under the will of his grandfather, John Underbill, he became en- 
titled to a property in Staffordshire (the family originally came from Wolver- 
hampton), and some eight years later he married Ursula, the youngest daughter of 
John Congreve, Esq., of Congreve. Of this lady it is recorded that " her life was 
a spectacle unto all honest, virtuous, and obedient wives." The names of five 
children are given in the Herald's Visitation as the issue of this marriage, — Wil- 
liam, Dorothy, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Anne. 

In 1551, Edmund Bury passed to his brother-in-law, William Underhill, the 
manor of Barton-upon-the-Heath, which place, it will be remembered, is referred 
to in the introduction to the ' Taming of the Shrew.' This transfer seems to have 
been made for family reasons only, as the estate reverted to the Burys at a later 

In September, 155G, he presented Dr. Eoger Clerke to the living of Idlicot, of 
which he held the patronage. 

In May, 1561, his wife died and was buried at N. Eatington, and, after a time, 
he married again. His second wife was Dorothy, widow of Richard Newport, and 
only sister of Christopher Hatton, who subsequently became Lord Chancellor. 

In 1567 he purchased the mansion in Stratford-on-Avon known as "New 
Place," and the following year, bought the manor and estate of Idlicot. At that 
time he was described as \V illiam Underhill, gent., of Newbold Revel. 

Malone, in referring to certain Stratford records relating to the transfer of 
land, mentions an indenture, executed May 30, 156S, between William Clopton, 
Esq., of the one part, and Sir Robert Throgmorton, Sir Thomas Lucy, Edmond 
Plowden, Esq., William Underhill, Esq., of Newbold Revel, and others, of the other 

Under date January 26, 1569, the Council-book of Stratford-on-Avon has the 
following entry, which probably refers to him :- — " Item payd for a dyner for M r 
Underell at the Swanne 17 s 4 d ." 

Still acquiring property, he purchased, in 1569, the manor of Loxley. The 
same year his wife, Dorothy, died. Her will, made with the sanction of her hus- 
band, directs that the property which had come to her on the death of her son 
John Newport should pass to her second husband, in consideration of the advances 
he had made for the payment of her debts. 

Dugdale states that William Underhill died March 31, 1570. In his will, made 
on the previous December, he described himself as of Newbold Revel, and directed 
that he should be buried at N. Eatington. To his heir he left the third part of all 
his manors, lands, and tenements, the rest — the manor of Idlicot being held in 
capite — to his executors, to fulfil the intents and meaning of his will and to bring 
up his children. 

His marble memorial has portraitures in brass and escutcheons of the arms of 
Underhill impaling those of Congreve. The inscription is given by Dugdale. 

Of his daughters it may be added that one was married to John Harman, of 
Morehall; and another, Anne, to George Mathew, of Berkswell. 

William Underhill, the only son and heir of the foregoing, was born in 1554, 
and was in his seventeenth year at the time of his father's decease. About 1577 
he married his cousin Mary, daughter of Tho. Underhill, of Eatington, and resided 
at New Place. In 1578 his eldest son and heir, Fulk, was born. In 1583 he pre- 



sented, as patron, a clerk to the living of Idlicot. On the 25th of November, 1585, 
the registers of Stratford state that " Elizabeth d r of M William CJndrell " was 
baptized. The following year, according to the Stratford records, a writ of capias 
was issued against him as bail for one Erancis Stone, and at the suit of Richard 

A survey taken in 1590 states that at that time " Willielmus Underbill, gen. 
tenet libere quandam domum vocatam " The Newe Place " cum pertinentiis per 
reddit. per annum 12 d sect, cur." The same survey informs us that he also held 
in " Walker's strete unum horreum," etc. 

In 1595, declining to pay to the corporation of Stratford the rent of the tithes 
of Little Wilnecott,* which had been leased to him, a bill of complaint was lodged 
by the bailiff and burgesses, and to this he put in his answer and demurrer in 
February, 1596-7. 

Under date March 11, 1597, the Stratford records allude to an action brought 
by " William Underehylle gent." against John Smith, vintner, on a plea of debt. 

On the 8th of April, in the same year, Walter Bassett, gent., and Sconsolate, 
his wife, bind themselves, under a penalty, to William Underhill, of Utlicote, co. 
Warwick, Esquire, in respect of the manor of Hints, near Lichfield. 

About the same period one Tho. Huntbach filed a Bill in Chancery against Wil- 
liam and Foulk Underhill, to enforce the agreement made to sell him a farm and 
lands at Shustoke. 

In Easter term, 1597, William Underhill sold to Shakspeare, for £60, the house 
at Stratford known as "New Place." The property is described as consisting of 
one messuage, two barns, and two gardens, with their appurtenances. It had been 
in the Underhill family thirty years. 

William Underhill is said to have been poisoned at Eillongley. He made his 
will July 6, 1597, and it was proved in London in the following month. In the 
Inq. p. m. taken at W olverhampton, where he held property, he is described as of 
Eillongley : the original is preserved in the Rolls Office. To his eldest son, Eulk, 
he gave all his lands, and to each of his remaining sons £200, — they were Her- 
cules, Timothy, Ludowick, William, and Simon : of these, Hercules was knighted, 
and became heir on the death of Eoulke in 1598, and of him Shakspeare purchased 
a messuage in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1602. 

The arms of the Stratford Underhills were " Argent a chevron gules between 
three trefoils slipped vert ;" and the crest is usually given as " a hind lodged or on 
a mount vert," but an old seal of the Underhills in the possession of Mr. Evelyn 
Ph. Shirley exhibits it as "a buck trippant."

Lucas (p. 22). — William Lucas, of Middletown, married Esther Clark, 
July 12, 1666. She died April 15th, and he died April 20th, 1690, leaving issue 
William Lucas, born April 26, 1667 ; John Lucas, born October 14, 1669 ; 
Mary Lucas, born 5th December, 1672 ; Thomas Lucas, born . . . 1676 ; and 
Samuel Lucas, born April 15, 1682. A Mr. Lucas resided at Newhaven iu 
1643 with a family of six, of whom no more is heard. A Lucas family of 
good estate in New England is of French desceut. They came not very 
early across the ocean. The first emigrant, Augustus Lucas, writes of himself, — 
" I married 6 th January, 1696, at St. Malo, in Bretagne " (see James Savage's ' Ge- 
nealogical Dictionary,' vol. iii.). Several of the name of Lucas resided at Col- 
chester some two hundred years ago, but I cannot find that any of them emigrated 
to New England at the time corresponding with the above William. There was a 
John Lucas, Abbot of Waltham, co. Essex, in 1460: he died 1475. I should feel 



glad to learn some account of that individual, — as to what branch of the Lucas 
family he belouged, and where he was buried. I have a rubbing of a monumental 
brass from Lofts Wendon Church, Essex, with this inscription upon it : — ;< Eic jacent 
WhTus Lucas et Katerina Uxor ejus, quorum animabus PPicietur Deus, Amen." 
Cole, in his MS. vol. xxxv. p. 28, states the following : — " Under this ere y Figures 
in Brass of 4 sons and as many Daughters (w ch in the sketch on y opposite Side I 
have mede too large in Proportion), the eldest Son is habited as a Bishop or Abbat, 
with a Mitre on his Head & a Crosier in his left hand, & giving his Benediction 
with his right : But as there never was a prelate of that name of Lucas except 
John Lucas, who was chosen Lord Abbat of Waltham ab* 1460, & who died 1475, 
this determines it to be meant for him : in all probability, therefore, this was his 
native Place, this account I sent to my Friend Brown "Willis Esq." The arms and 
date are quite gone.

Matjduit (p. 36).— "In the spring of 1669, Cosmo III., Grand Duke of Tus- 
cany, visited Exeter on his way from Plymouth to London." . . . He was " lodged 
at the New Inne (sometimes called Merchants' Hall), and ... for the more orderly 
doing thereof, M r Mawdett, M r Brodridge, and M r Sparke were desired to assist 
the Beceiver therein." — 4 Act Books of the Chamber of Exeter, 5 vol. ix. p. 86 ; 
quoted by Dr. Oliver, 1 History of Exeter,' p. 135. 

" Isaac Mawditt " was Mayor of Exeter in 1673, and again in 1681. Did he, 
then, die in 1674, or were these two Isaacs, father and son ? 

" Isaac Mawditt and Stephen Olivean " were Sheriffs of the County of the 
City of Exeter in 1663, and Isaac Mawditt again in 1670. 

" Nongecot (near Tiverton) anno 27 of King Henry 3, belonged unto Bobert 
Mauduit ; whom followed John, anno 24 of Kinge Edw. 1. ; & hym Bobert Mau- 
duit, in anno 8 Kinge Edw. 2, & anno 19 of Kinge Edw. 3."— Pole, ed. 1791, p. 215. 

" Southwood, in the parish of Exminster, was, in anno 27 of Kinge Henry 3, 
the land of Thomas Mauduit ; & anno 30 of Kinge Edw. 1, John Eranceis held 
it."— lb. p. 253. 

Oldaport, in the parish of Modbury. — " W T illiam de Heanton, of Oldport, which 
by Jone his wief, daughter and heire of Walter de Sweinthil], had issue J one, wief 
of Bichard Malduit, called Somaister." — lb. p. 313. 

The pedigree of "Somaster [of Pensford] " is thus given by Westcote, p. 551 : — 
" Bichard Maldyt, called Southmaster,* of Exon, married Joan, daughter and heir 
of William de Henton, and had issue Bobert ; who married Margaret, daughter 
and heir of John Herward, of Bothkison, and Joan, his wife, daughter and 
heir of John le Cornu, by whom he had issue Balph, William, Adam. This 
Bobert died before his father ; he sealed with the gate : which arms came to him 
by his mother, whose grandmother was daughter and heir to De la Port [of Olda- 
port]. William, of JNetherexe [close to Exeter], second son, had a daughter and 
heir married to [John] Limpenny. — From Adam Somaster is descended Somaster 
of Pensford," whose pedigree Westcote gives at p. 500, and the arms, — " Argent, a 
castle triple-towered between eight fleurs-de-lis [sable] . Crest, — A portcullis, with 
chains, argent. This part was granted for a crest by Clarence Cooke, 14th March, 
1586, under his hand and seal."* 

I find no notice of Balph : "William, the second son, married Alice daughter of 
John Prideaux, of Adeston, near Modbury, and had issue William, whose son John 
died without issue. JSTetherexe passed to John Limpenny, mentioned above, and 
was sold by him to William Hurst, of Exeter.— Pole, p. 190. 

Probably the Exeter Mauduits were a branch of this very ancient family.

Lawrence and "Washington. — At a Wiltshire Archaeological Meeting held 
some years ago at Malmesbury, the shields with the arms of Lawrence quartering 
Washington, the North Wilts family, were exhibited. These came from a church 
at Malmesbury, the monuments to which they belonged, being removed when that 
church was restored. Can any of your readers tell me where those shields are now 
to be found, and to what branch of the Wilts Lawrences they belong ? The only 
Malmesbury Lawrences I know of are the following : —

A stone monument to the memory of Sir Lawrence Washington is now, I hear, 
at the Rectory, Grarsdon, three miles from Malmesbury, which originally was put 
up in the church at Grarsdon, and was removed there when the church was restored 
about ten years ago. 

I am anxious to find out, first, the connection between the Lawrences and 
Washingtons (a North Wilts family) ; secondly, would be glad if any one could 
add any information to the above Lawrence descent.

William Crow, late of Groldington, Bedfordshire, gentleman, with William Disher, 
of London, merchant, dated 23 March, 1699, are the seals of Dorothy Crow and 
William Disher. That of Dorothy Crow is here given. The seal used by William 

Disher is much mutilated. The arms appear to be a chevron between three double- 
headed eagles displayed. Crest, a centaur passant reguardant drawing a bow and

John Hilles, D.D. — Can any of your readers inform me what arms were 
borne by John Hilles, D.D., Master of Catherine Hall, Cambridge, and Archdea- 
con of Lincoln, who died in 1626 ? He mentions in his will, made in 1625, his 
sons John, Heigham, Robert, William, and Thomas, also his daughters Anne, 
Susan, and Jane. Anne married Edward Aylmer, D.D., of Claydon Hall, Suffolk, 
a grandson of the Bishop of London. Information respecting any of his family 
will greatly oblige.

Riciiard Stonelet. — Information is requested respecting Richard Stoneley, 
one of the Tellers of the Exchequer, originally of Warwick, and who purchased — 
in the year 1579, of the Oxford family — Dodinghurst, in Essex. He married (see 
Burke's ' Commoners,' "Taylor of Clifton ") Anne, daughter and coheir of John 
Braunche, Esq., by Ellen, daughter and coheir of Francis Hampden, and had issue 
two daughters, coheiresses, — Dorothy, married to William Dawtrey, of Moor 
House, Sussex, and Anne, the wife of William LTeigham, of East Ham, Essex. 

The arms of Stoneley were, — Azure on a fesse between three bucks' heads 
caboshed or a fleur-de-lis of the first between two demi-roses gules. And Anne 
(who married Heigham) and her descendants quartered with this coat, — Azure a 
fesse between three scythe-blades (or horns) or. 

This quartering does not agree either with the arms of Braunche or Hampden ; 
it is more like the coat of Brayne of Gloucestershire. Can any of your corre- 
spondents offer an explanation '{

Sib, G-eorge Smith, Knight. — I am extremely anxious to establish the identity 
between the Sir G-eorge Smith (or Smythe), of Matford, co. Devon, knight, alluded 
to in Westcote's ' View of Devonshire,' 1845, pp. 187, 470, 631 : and Burke's 
' Landed Grentry,' title " Granville of Wellesbourne :" the Sir G-eorge Smyth, of 
Motford, co. Dorset, referred to in the Harleian MSS. 1166, fo. 9 ; 1451, fo. 17 ; 
1539, fo. 96 : and G-eorge Smith, of Mudford, co. Somerset, whose name occurs in 
Hutchins's ' Dorset,' first edition, 1774, vol. i. p. 151 ; second edition, 1796, vol. i. p. 
248 ; third edition, 1861, vol. i. part iii. p. 408. All the Sir G-eorge Smiths above 
mentioned lived in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. I presume that Matford, co. 
Devon, Motford, co. Dorset, and Mudford, co. Somerset, are in reality the same 
place, and that a clerical error has been committed by the transcribers of the 
Harleian MSS. I may add that I have private reasons of my own for coming to 
this conclusion, but I wish to be confirmed in my view of the case. My object 
would be fully attained if I could ascertain the names of all the daughters of Sir 
G-eorge Smith, of Matford, and of the gentlemen of quality to whom they were 

Thomas Parr Henning. 

P.S. — I find upon consulting Westcote, p. 631, that Sir George Smith formed 
two matrimonial alliances. Perhaps this circumstance would assist in throwing 
light upon the point in question.

The Archbolds were a family of importance in Alnwick for at least a century 
and a half. William, the first recorded, was at South Park in 1650, and John, the 
last of them in Alnwick, died there in 1805. Successive members of the family

were bailiffs to the Earls of Northumberland, tenants of Cawledge South Park 
— still called Arehbold's Park, — and owners of considerable property in the parish 
of Alnwick. St. Thomas's lands, formerly part of the possessions of Alnwick 
Abbey, and other fields, and several burgages in the town belonged to them. 
They loom largely in Alnwick Church : on the monumental limestone slab " Gulielmi 
Archbold," their arms, a lion rampant between six fleurs-de-lis, and crest, a fleur- 
de-lis, are grandly sculptured, and they appear, too, with the initials I. A. and date 
1711, on the lintel of a doorway of one of the burgages which belonged to them. 

The Archbolds were a long-lived race. William, the first of them, died in 
1700, aged 82 years ; John, the next, died in 1730, aged 7 6 years ; Edward, the 
third in succession, died in 1764, aged 79 years ; and John, the last of them, in 
1805, aged 83 years : so that the united ages of four successive generations amount 
to three hundred and twenty years.

Hawoeth oe Howoeth Pedigeee. — A branch of this ancient family migrated 
from Haworth, in the township of Hundersfield, near Eochdale, on the borders of 
Yorkshire and Lancashire, and settled in Snaith for some generations, and then 
came to Hull in the latter half of the seventeenth century. 

Dr. James, in the ' Iter Lancastrense,' written 1636, thus describes his visit to 
Haworth Hall : — 

" To Eobin Howorth from whose Eamilie 
Great Noble Peers derive their progenie." 

This Eobin Howorth was born in 1600 and succeeded his father, Edmund 
Howorth, of Howorth, and is mentioned by Sir Eichard St. G-eorge in his Visita- 
tion of Lancaster in 1613. He was the twenty-second in lineal descent from 
Osbert Howord de Howord, who was Master of the Buck-hounds in the time of 
Henry II., and who received certain lands in Howord for his good and faithful 
services to his sovereign. 

The Snaith and Hull parish registers contain the following entries : — 

" Adam Hawworth married 1540 Allyson Greene." (Snaith.) 

" Hen. Haworth married 1568 Agnes Lambert." (Whitgift.)

Boothes," tempore Richard II. and Henry IV. 

The registers at Snaith are defective in several places, and in some years no 
entries were made, e.g. from 1657 to 1661. 

* I much wish to ascertain the names of the father and mother of Mrs. Mary 
Haworth and date of her marriage. 

Also the date of the marriage of Joshua Haworth and Dorothy Stephenson. 

Also the date of baptism and the parentage of Peter Haworth, of Rawcliife and 
Snaith, and some further account of his first wife, Jane. 

I shall be especially thankful for any particulars respecting the early members 
of the Haworth family who settled at Snaith, so as to connect them directly with 
the family, and later owners of Haworth Hall during the fifteenth and sixteenth 

Also for information, from the Court Rolls of Snaith or otherwise, as to Henrie 
Heworth or Haworth, who married Agnes Lambert, and Thomas Haworth, who 
married Mary Baynton. 

The arms of Stephenson of Swinefleet, near Snaith, were — Grules on a bend 
argent three leopards' faces vert. 

The arms of Haworth same as Haworth of Haworth, viz. Azure a bend between 
two stags' heads couped or. Crest : A stag's head couped gules, attired or, with a 
wreath about its neck argent.

John Witiiie and Richard Mundy. — Can any of your correspondents in- 
form me where I can find any biographies or notices of John Withie or Richard 
Mundy, the well-known transcribers of the Heralds' Visitations in the seventeenth 
century, so many of which are in the Harleian Library in the British Museum ? 
Had they any appointment under the heralds, or were the transcripts made for any 
particular library ?

Clause or St. Ives (p. 36).— The seal of Eobert Clarke, elder, of St. Ives, 
1686, appears to be compounded with the arms of Lawrence of St. Ives. On 
reference to the pedigree of the latter family, it will be observed that a lady of it 
married a Clarke early in the seventeenth century.

Pedigree of Best (p. 44). — In a pedigree in my possession I find mention of 
Edward Turner (son of Thomas Turner, of Gray's Inn and Canterbury, by Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Sir Edward Boys, of Eredvile), who married, about 1670-80, 
Elizabeth Best. I am anxious to know whether there was issue of the marriage.

Lascelles. — The following is the only entry relating to this family in the 
parish registers of Langton, near Malton : — 

" 1657. M ris Lassells of Thornthorp buried February y e 6 th ." 
And in the church of St. Leonard's, Malton, — 

" M r Swinburn Lascelles, Attorney at Law, was Buried in Woollen the 27 th of 
December 1729." 

Edward Morton. 

Thurston. — Information wanted as to the ancestry of Edward Thurston, born 
in England about 1617, emigrated to the colony of Bhode Island, in New England, 
before 1648, and died in Newport, E. I., in 1707. 

Charles M. Thurston. 

New Rochelle, New York, U. S. 

Sir Isaac Heard, Garter. — I have a fine China bowl bearing the arms of Sir 
Isaac Heard, Garter King of Arms. I think it must have been presented to him 
for some particular service ; but as I am uncertain, I should be glad if any one 
could give information on the subject. 

E. M. 

Arms (p. 47). — To " C. J. B." I suggest that the emblazonment he inquires 
about may posssibly pertain to the name of Banks. The arms on the dexter side 
are nearly those of Banks, of Aylesford, co. Kent, which are said to be Sable on a 
cross between four fleurs-de-lis argent five pheons azure. The bearing impaled, 
gules a lion rampant or, was that of D' Albany, Albney, and Albini. 

Charles Jackson. 


Smeaton. — Can any of your correspondents inform me where a pedigree of the 
family of Smeaton, living at Kirk Smeaton, near Pontefract, about 1400, is given ; 
or state what arms they bore ? Also whether John Smeaton, the builder of Eddy- 
stone lighthouse, who was born at Austhorpe, near Leeds, in 1724, was descended 
from that family ? 

James Busby. 

* Also ancestor of Lords Abinger and Campbell, Sir A. J. Lawrence, K.C.B., etc. The author 
of the papers referred to is a good general guide, but not a faithful genealogist, for on an examina- 
tion of the Lawrence wills it will be seen that he sometimes entirely suppressed senior lines to ma\e 
room for junior. 



White Family. — John White carne to Ireland, from England, in a year 
between 1695 and 1702. I have some faint recollection of hearing that he came 
from Kent. He purchased lands which had been forfeited by the adherents of King 
James in 1702, in the counties of Limerick and Tipperary, in which a Mr. John 
Marshall was a partner for a part, lie lived and died at Cappagh, in the county 
of Tipperary, which is still called Cappagh White, after him. He died in 1718. 
His first wife was Susanna, sister to Richard Newport, Esq., of Longford, in the 
county of Limerick ; she died 7th December, 1700, and was buried in the family 
vault at Toem, co. Tipperary. His second wife was Catherine Mann, a widow : 
she was sister to Lord Muskerry (Deane) . His children by his first wife were 
Richard, Newport, Rebecca, and Catherine. 

Rev. Newport White married Fanny Forster. His sons were, — John, married 
Catherine Hunt ; Richard, died at Smyrna, in Asia Minor ; Newport, married Mary 

Newport's youngest son, Benjamin, married Catherine, eldest daughter of New- 
port White, eldest son of John and Catherine. His three sons were Rev. Newport 
Benjamin, Rev. Henry Vere, and John Davis. 

John White, first named, had three half-brothers, who came to Ireland at the 
same time as he did. His mother's name was Schuldam. They were the children 
of a Miss Hamilton. Their names were Benjamin, William, and Hamilton. Ben- 
jamin was ancestor of the branch of the family known as the Whitehall branch, 
Finch White, of Kincora, near Killaloe, being the representative ; William, of the 
Whites of Greenhall, New Ross, and Manister ; Hamilton, of the Bantry family 
(Earl of Bantry). 

When Richard White was created Baron Bantry, he of course applied for a 
grant of arms. The heralds gave him the arms of Sir Thomas White, of Rick- 
mansworth, who was Lord Mayor of London in 1555, and these arms are now 
adopted by every branch of the family. I think the arms should more properly 
have been those of Sir William White, who was Lord Mayor of London in 1489, 
— in which there are three covered cups, and three martlets upon a chevron, as I 
was told that there was some old family plate which had " covered cups " as part 
of the arms.* 

The following arms are on the seal used by John White attached to a lease 
made by him : — A chevron between three roses ; Crest, An arm embowed holding 
a sword. There was an old family of Whites in Clonmel, and on a tombstone 
belonging to one of the family, date about 1550, the arms were the same as on the 
seal used to the lease. 

I am anxious, if possible, to ascertain if there is any tradition among any family 
of my name in any part of England, of four brothers, as above named, having come 
to Ireland about the time named ; and also whether by the aid of what I have 
stated about the coat of arms, my family can be identified with any of the name at 
present living in England.

Compiled from the Records op the College of Arms, London, and prom 

CASTER Herald. 

A deed, dated 3 May, 1633, relating to tliis ancient famity, is in the possession of 
Charles Golding, Esq. 

It appears to be the settlement made shortly after the marriage of Reynald (sic) 
Bray, son and heir apparent of Sir Giles Bray, of Barrington, Knt., with Martha, 
daughter of Peter Humble, late of Goosehayes, co. Essex, Esq., deceased, whereby 
the said Sir Giles settles his manors of Great and Little Barrington and his lands 
there on trustees (viz. Sir Robert Quarles, of Romford, co. Essex, Knt., and John 
Hide, of London, gent.) to use of himself for life, remainder to his wife Dame 
Anne for her life, remainder to said Reynald Bray for life, remainder (as to the 
capital mansion and part of the estate) to said Martha for her life, remainder to 
issue of said Reynald in tail male, remainder to Edmund Bray, second son of said 
Sir Giles, for life, and his issue in like manner ; and (as to the residue of the 
estate after the death of said Reynald Bray) to the issue of the said Regnald in 
tail general, with remainder to said Edmund and his issue in like manner, remainder 
(as to the whole) to the right heirs of the said Sir Giles Bray. 

This Reginald Bray died in his father's lifetime, leaving a son, Edmund, who 
had inherited his mother's lands in Essex before 16 March, 164f, as Sir Giles, by 
his will of that date, desires the Court of Wards to raise money for him out of 
those lands and not out of his (own) lands, co. Gloucester, Oxon, and Berks. This 
will was proved by Dame Ann Bray, 14 May, 1641, and again 19 November, 1657, 
by Edmund Bray, Esq., son and next of kin to testator, who appears to have been 
afterwards made a knight. 

Signature and Seal of Sir Giles Bray, of Barrington, Knight, from Deed dated 3 May, 1633. 

The seal appended to deed is quarterly of four coats, of which the first and second 
are both the well-known coats of " Bray." The third quarter is for " Monington," 
and is allowed by Cooke, Clarenceux, temp. Eliz.,to "Monington, formerly of Corn- 
wall " [query if not Cornwall in Oxfordshire]. In the Visitation of Herefordshire 
made in 1569 it is quartered in the second and third quarters by the Moningtons of 
that" county, and stated in a marginal note to be the coat with which Sir John Lawton, 
Knt., sealed (temp. Ed. III.), whose daughter and heiress, Eleanor, married into 
the family of Monington. The fourth quarter is for " Harman," though, strangely 
enough, it also is quartered in the second and third quarters by the Harmans of 
Taynton, in Oxfordshire —the first and fourth being " Sable three currycombs 

A short pedigree will show more clearly how these quarterings are brought in, 



and the relationship of the different parties to one another and to the ancient 
family of Bray, Lords Braye.

Skippon Family (p. 37). — In the notice of the Skippon family introductory 
to the entries copied from the Bible and given in the July number, it is said that 
Philip, the grandson, buried at Edwardstone in 1716, appears to have been the last 
male of the name. This is not strictly correct, for although he was undoubtedly 
the last male descendant of the Parliamentary General, there were persons who 
bore the name, and whom I believe to have been descendants of collaterals, living 
within the present century, and the name is not extinct in Norfolk even now. 

Of the immediate line to which the General belonged the following additional 
particulars may not be unacceptable : — 

William Skippon, Esq., who died at Tavistock on 1 January, 1633/4, was pos- 
sessed of an estate at Eoulsham, Wood Norton, and Bintry, in Norfolk, which, by 
his will, dated 5 August, 1631, he devised " to Captaine Philippe Skippon, eldest 
sonne of my brother Luke Skippon," and the heirs male of his body. Luke 
Skippon, brother of said Philip, and Erancis Skippon, son of Erancis Skippon de- 
ceased and testator's nephew, were in remainder. Luke Skippon, the testator's 
brother and heir at the time of his death, was sixty years old.* 

Luke Skippon, of West Lexham, gent., the brother, died there 20 September, 
1638 ; Philip Skippon, described as " of Eoulsham, Esq.," his son and heir, being 
forty years of age.f On the same day, 20 September, 1638, probate was granted 
to Anne Skippon, his relict, of " notes taken for the making of the last will and 
Testament of Luke Skippon of West Lexham gent,," dated 4 September, 1638, by 
the Archdeaconry Court of Norwich. In these, Philip, his son, was the principal 
devisee. He also mentions Luke Skippon, his grandchild, and his grandchildren, 
William, Luke, and Christopher Shene. Mary, his daughter, had married Chris- 
topher Shene, Rector of Cockley Cley. 

The General's will, dated 20 February, 1659, and proved 25 October, 1660, is 
referred to by the Rev. Thomas Quarles in the ' History of Eoulsham.' J 

Upon this I shall be much obliged for answers to the following queries : — 

Who was Dame Katherine (Phillips), his second wife ? 

Which of the daughters named in the Bible entries was Mrs. Bragge, who had 
been the widow of Colonel Rolfe ; and who were these two husbands ? 

Which other of the daughters besides Mrs. Meredith was married, and to 
whom ? 

On the monument in Acton Church to the memory of Mary, the first wife, 
Skippon quarters the following coats, — 2. Azure a chevron between three crosses 
pattee or ; 3. Barry of eight argent and vert, a griffin segreant or : and impales — 
Ermine three lions passant in pale gules. A knowledge of these may lead to the 
discovery of his maternal descent. 

Luke Skippon, the General's brother had been presented to the Rectory of 
Hingham, in 1638, by Sir Thomas Wodehouse, the patron, on the erroneous sup- 
position of the death of the incumbent, who reappeared ; and in 1642 he was pre- 
sented, by the same patron, to the Rectory of Litcham, which he appears to have 
held until 1662, during some part of which incumbency he resided in the adjoining 
parish of Mileham ; and there six children, by Elizabeth, his wife, — two sons, both 
of whom died in infancy, and four daughters, — were baptized, the first on 7 
January, 1642/3, and the last 2 November, 1650. He had the degree of D.D. con- 
ferred upon him in 1660, by Royal licence. In 1662 he was Vicar of West Braden-

12 July, 1676, by Elizabeth, bis widow and relict. Erances, his eldest daughter, 
was then wife of John Franklin, Rector of Tittleshall ; Susan, wife of " Mr. Cle- 
ment Higham, Rector of Scalthorp ;" Jane, wife of Roger Hainesworth, of West 
Lynn ; and his other daughters, Mary and Anne, were also then living, of whom both 
died unmarried. Dr. Skippon, in his will, also names " his noble kinsman, Sir John 
Bladwell, of Rougham," and his nephew, Mr. Philip Skippon, of Wrentham. The 
three married daughters all left issue. Upon the monument of a single daughter 
in Swaffham Church, he is described as " eminent for his piety, learning, and 
loyalty." In the last named virtue a striking contrast with his brother. 

I have many notes of persons of this family of earlier date, derived from wills, 
court rolls, and parish registers. The prevalent baptismal names were Luke and 
Bartholomew. Bartholomew Skippon was living at East Lexham in 1541, as in the 
same year was Thomas Skippon at Weasenham ; the latter had a brother Luke, 
and they continued in those parishes for several generations, but I have been un- 
able at present to trace the ascending link connecting William and Philip, the first 
before mentioned, with any of them. I also find the name in several other parishes 
in Norfolk. A Luke Skippon was residing as recently as 1808 at Crimplesham, 
where several of his children were baptized. 

Can any of your readers inform me whether William Skippon, who died in 
January, 1633/4, resided at Tavistock in any public capacity? The family seems 
to have had some early connection with the south of England, as another William 
Skippon, a yeoman, who died at East Lexham in 1578, gave legacies to the towns 
of Chard and Cullington.

In Memory of Mary Dymoke, widow 
of Edward Dymoke of Wadingworth Esq 1 '. 
She was first married to J ohn Booth of 

Market- liaisin Esq 1 ' who 
lieth interr'd near this Place, and was 
one of the Daughters & coheiresses of 
John Loddington of Fonaby Esq 1 ' in 
Lincolnshire, who died the 22 nd 
of June 1740 
Aged 90 Years. 

John Booth, Esq., of Market Easen, by will, dated 15 March, 1685, and proved 
26 June, 1686, devises his lands in Killingholme and East Halton, and the Eectory 
there, to his executor, for bringing up his younger children until his eldest son 
shall come to twenty-one years of age. He gives legacies to his second son, 
Thomas, his third son, William, and to his daughters Ann and Mary ; and makes 
Mary, his wife, executrix. 

Probably his eldest son's name was John, as by deeds of 17 and 18 of Decem- 
ber, 1710, John Booth, of Market Easen, Esq., eldest son and heir of John Booth, 
late of Market Easen aforesaid, and heretofore of Harpswell, Esq., deceased, con- 
veys to Henry Andrews, of Osgodby, Esq., and his heirs, a manor and lands in 

The daughter of the said Henry Andrews married a John Booth, Esq., who 
died in the lifetime of his said father-in-law, leaving three sons, Henry Booth, 
John Booth, and Thomas Booth ; and administration of the goods of the said John 
Booth, deceased, was granted on the 5th of August, 1719, to the said Henry An- 
drews, as grandfather, guardian, tutor, and curator lawfully elected and admitted 
for his said grandchildren. This appears from the will of the said Henry Andrews, 
dated December, 1727, and proved at Lincoln 9 July, 1731. 

Henry Andrews in his said will devises his rectory and tithes and lands in East 
Halton to his said grandson Henry Booth and his heirs, and also devises lands in 
Killingholme to his grandsons John Booth and Thomas Booth respectively. 

The last mentioned Henry Booth was of Thorpe Hall, co. Lincoln, and sold 
the Halton estate to the first Lord Yarborough, and had an illegitimate son, John 
Booth, a merchant of Hull, who was living there in 1802. 

John Booth, brother of Henry Booth, lived and died at Hull, a merchant. 

Thomas Booth, the younger brother of Henry Booth, died Vicar of Market 
Easen in 1764, as is already mentioned. He and Anna Maria, his wife, were first 

Their son John Booth was of Spilsby, co. Lincoln, and married to his second 
wife at Boston, co. Lincoln, 16 February, 1779, Elizabeth "Worley, of Boston. He 
was buried at Boston, 1st January, 1783, aged 40, and left a surviving sou, Henry 
Booth, baptized at Boston 24 May, 1781, who in 1804 was a Lieutenant in the 
2nd West Yorkshire Militia.

Lawrence and Washington (p. 46).— "E. G-. L." will find in the ' Gentle- 
man's Magazine ' (1815-16 and 1829) a series of papers on various families named 
" Lawrence," by my kinsman, the late James Lawrence, author of ' The Nobility of 
the British Grentry.' 

In these exhaustive — or nearly so — papers (albeit full of errors) occurs a match 
between a Lawrence of Ashton Hall and a Washington of Washington, both in co. 

The late Greo. Lawrence, of Cowerfield, Wilts, was not of a Wiltshire family, but, 
like the author in question, was descended from John Lawrence,* of Jamaica, son 
of Henry Lawrence, President of the Council of State under the Protectorate. 

The whole of these latter genealogical matters will be found in the Lawrence 
wills, recorded in the Lyon Office, Edinburgh, etc. J. H. L.-A. 

Lawrence and Washington (p. 46). — At the Malmesbury Meeting of the 
Wiltshire Archaeological Society in August, 1862, the following appears in the List 
of Articles exhibited at the Temporary Museum : — 

" By the Eev. W. Chambers, Grarsdon (since deceased), — Slab, bearing an in- 
scription to Sir Lawrence Washington, Knt., Chief Eegister of the Chancery, who 
died in 1643, aged 64, from Grarsdon Church. Sir Lawrence was the purchaser of 
the manor of Grarsdon from the Moody family. Also three shields with the arms of 
Washington." See Aubrey's ' Wilts Collections,' edited by the Eev. J. E. Jackson, 
p. 242. 

It is presumed the present Rector of Grarsdon can furnish all the information 
required by your correspondent. The Eev. T. A. Methuen (Eector at the publica- 
tion of the last ' Clergy List ') is also deceased. E. Wilton. 

* Also ancestor of Lords Abingcr and Campbell, Sir A. J. Lawrence, K.C.B., etc. The author 
of the papers referred to ia a good general guide, but not a faithful genealogist, for on an examina- 
tion of the Lawrence wills it will be seen that he sometimes entirely suppressed senior lines to make 
room for junior.

1 The Rev. A. N. Sanderson was the son of Anthony and Elizabeth Sanderson, and was baptized 
at Hammersmith, 12 September, 1730. He had issue by his wife, Mary, five sons and two 
daughters. Only one of the sons left male issue, namely, Edward (see 5 ), who was baptized at

The Sanderson family claim descent from the Saundersons of Yorkshire and Notts, of whom a 
pedigree is given in Thoroton's 'Antiquities of Notts,' p. 474; of this family was Robert Saunder- 
son, Bishop of Lincoln, and the Saundersons, Viscounts Castleton. James, the sixth Viscount, was 
created a Peer of England in 1714 as Baron Saunderson of Saxby, and was advanced to the Earl- 
dom of Castleton in 1720. Upon his death, s. p., in 1723, all the honours became extinct, and he 
bequeathed his large estate to his cousin (on his mother's side), the Eavl (third) of Scarborough, 
who thereupon, by Act of Parliament, assumed the additional surname of Saunderson. 

The arms borne by the late Captain Sanderson and by his father and grandfather are, — Paly of 
six argent and azure a bend sable. Crests : — 1, A hound passant argent, armed and langued gules ; 
and 2, A palm-tree, from the branches on either side pendant a hawk's lure. 

Names of Places (p. 12). — The term " Langdon Hill " is a pleonasm, Lang- 
don being = " long hill " {long-dun). Chad well was named from St. Chad (Cedda). 
Tilbury probably means the fortification on the river Till : conf. Tilburg, a town of 
the Netherlands ; Tilbrook, Beds ; Till, a river of Northumberland, i. q. the Sill, 
i.e. Ill with a sibilant prefixed, from the Welsh Hi, a stream. Grays and Thur- 
rock were doubtless named from the respective owners : the former name is 
probably derived from Grray, in France, dep. Saone ; the latter would seem 
to be an augmentative of a surname, Torr or Thor. The name Aveley is from 
a proper name, Alvid, Alfwith, and Saxon leag, a pasture, meadow. The first 
part of the name Horndon is probably a corruption ; it may have the following 
meanings, thorn, tower, water, heron. Ockendon signifies the oak (ac-dun) ; 
Rainham, the dwelling on the Rain, perhaps the ancient name of a neighbouring- 
stream, from ran, ren, rin, run, found in fluvial names, and = water, stream ; conf. 
the Rhine, the Reno, flume principale del Bolognese. Mucking may mean a 



" great meadow." Stanford-le-Hope was named from a stone or paved ford, and 
the old Norsk hop, op, a recess (the bay formed by the winding of the Thames is 
called by seamen the " Hope "). Wcnnington might translate the " marsh town " 
(conf. the Cornish win-nick, a marsh), or it may be from gwyn (Welsh, id.), 
" white." There is a Wcnnington, cos. Lancaster and Hunts ; and Winnington, cos. 
Chester and Stafford. Bulphan, or Bulfan, might possibly translate " bull's-fen ;" 
Stifford, "steep-ford"; but I am disposed to consider it another form of Stafford, 
which I take to be from stead-ford, the ford of the place (A. S. steda-ford). The first 
syllable in Fobbing (Domesday Pltolinge) is doubtful. In the time of Edward the 
Confessor, Corringham is said to have belonged to one Sigar, and was, perhaps, 
originally Sigarham, afterwards Scigarnham, and finally corrupted to Curringham 
and Corringham ; Corringham is, however, the name of a place in Lincolnshire. 
The last syllable of Orsett may be from sett, a place, and the first syllable from or 
= water; or it would corrupt from Horse heath. Horseheath, in Cambridgeshire, 
is commonly pronounced Horsett. R. S. Charnock. 

Gray's Inn Square. ■ 

Aecheold. — The arms of Richard Archbold, of the Middle Temple, Esq. (third 
son of Edward Archbold, of the College of Worcester), who entered his pedigree 
in the Visitation of London in 1634, having then two sons living, were, — Argent 
a lion rampant between six fleurs-de-lis sable. 

Argent semee of fleurs-de-lis, a lion rampant sable, is the coat of William 
Archbold, D.D., sometime Vicar of St. Peter's, Cornhill, London, whose son, Henry 
Archbold, also entered his pedigree in the above-named Visitation. Jane, widow 
of Dr. Archbold, and daughter of William Billingsley, of Stepney, co. Middlesex, 
gent., died January, 1635, her funeral being recorded in the College of Arms. 

Gr. E. Adams, Lancaster. 

Arms. — On a cup in my possession are the following arms, to whom did it belong ? 
Per pale or and azure, on a fess between three greyhounds courant counterchanged 
a fleur-de-lis between two lozenges gules, impaling azure a chevron or between 
three hedgehogs of the last. Crest : On a wreath or and azure an arm embowed 
or holding a stork, wings expanded proper. Motto : " Virtus semper viridis."

Ciiayasse. — Can any correspondent give the arms of this family ? The foun- 
der in England, Claude Chavasse, is believed to have come from Dauphine.

Leigii or Rttshall. — A pedigree of this family, with several additions in 
MS., will be found in the copy of Shaw's ' History of Staffordshire ' in the British 
Museum, press-mark 1854 b. This family, which was the elder line of the Lords 
Leigh of Stoneleigh, is now, I believe, quite extinct. Lewis Leigh had issue, 
according to Shaw, Edward and Richard. This Richard married Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter of John Clark, of Newark, co. Notts, and had issue Richard (miscalled William 
by Shaw), who married Ann, daughter of Josiah Jarvis, of Atherstone, co. War- 
wick, by whom he had the Rev. William Leigh, Rector of Pulham, co. Norfolk, 
and Prances, wife of William Gray, by whom she had an only son, William, who 
died s. p. The Rev. Wm. Leigh married Mary, daughter of . . . Proud, and died 
s. p., 11 of April, 1858, and was buried at Pulham, St. Mary. 

A. Leigh. 

Bath, Prior Catstlow. — Prior from 1489-1499. Archbishop Morton visited 
Bath in his time. He restored St. Catherine's and St. Mary Magdalene's Chapel, 
near Bath. Can any one tell me more about him P W. S. S. 




It has long been a problem to those who have studied the genealogy of Arch- 
bishop Cranmer, whether the Cramners of Warwickshire can be descended from 
the Cranmers of Aslacton, in Nottinghamshire. The name constantly occurs in 
the registers of Tanworth, and of the adjoining parishes in the rural deanery of Al- 
cester from 1626, but there is no clue to their earlier history, although the registers 
of Tanworth are said to begin in 1558. It is, at least, a curious coincidence that 
Samuel Cranmer, Alderman of London, who died in 1640, seised of the manor of 
Upper Itchington in Warwickshire, and whom we know to have been descended 
from the Archbishop's eldest brother, is said on his monument at Astwood Bury 
(Bucks) to have been born at Alcester about 1575. The Alderman was an only 
son, and his father John Cranmer was born and bred at Aslacton, so that it is 
difficult to connect him with the Warwickshire family : still the fact remains, that 
his father was living at Alcester in 1575, and that there were families of the same 
name in the same district fifty years later. The following extracts supply materials 
for a pedigree of the Cranmers of Warwickshire, and will, I hope, induce some 
local antiquary with greater knowledge and opportunities to pursue this interesting

* It is remarkable that notwithstanding the grant by Hervy, 10 July, 1557 (see preceding 
page), to this John Skynner and his posterity of " the owlde and auncient armes of his auncestors," 
his son and descendants should have made use of quite a different bearing, viz. argent a lion rampant 
sable within an orle of eight crescents gules : crest, — -on a ducal coronet argent a falcon of the last, 
beaked and legged gules. These arms occur as being allowed (though no grant of them appears) at 
the Visitations, and they are also upon some of the family monuments at Goxhill and Thornton- 
Curtis. In 1609 we meet with a letter from Sir V. Skynner to the Earl of Salisbury sealed with 
the arms of Skynner of Norwich, viz. three cross-bows. 

t Information as to what became of this William Skinner is required (see letter from Mr. Jack- 
Bon, of Doncastei'j to the ' Lincoln Mercury,' 2nd September} 1870). Nothing has been made out

The Cbosfield or Ckossfield Family. — I have in my possession a Bible, 
the entries in which are as follows : — 

New York June 23, 1758, 1, Stephen Crosfield (son of William and Elizabeth Cros- 
field of the town of Dorton* in Lancashire in Great Britain) entered into the 
holy state of matrimony with Mary, youngest daughter of Johannes and Mar- 
garetta Kerf byl of this same city of New York. 

July 10, 1765, was born our beloved son Stephen and baptized by Rev. John 
Oglevie in St. George's Chapel. "Witnesses Mr. Andrew Gautier and Eliza- 
beth his wife. 

July 16, 1769 My beloved wife Mary departed this life in the 44 th year of her age, 
and was the next day interred in the family vault of Andrew Gautier Esq., in 
Trinity Churchyard. 

May 21, 1777 I, Stephen Crosfield married my second wife, Hannah Disbury of 

New York, daughter of Griffin and Hannah Disbury of New Jersey. 
February 20, 1778, was born our beloved son William, and baptized by the Eev. 

Mr. Bagley. Witness Henry Newton and Aun Crosfield. 
August 15, 1780, Our beloved son William departed this life, and was next day 

interred in the family vault of Andrew Gautier Esq. in Trinity Church yard. 
August 23, 1782 was born our beloved daughter Elizabeth, and baptized by the 

Eev. Mr. Benjamin Moore. Witness, Henry Newton, Ann Crosfield and 

Elizabeth Dunbar. 

May 4, 1790 My beloved son Stephen departed this life aged 24 years and 10 
months, and interred in the family vault of Andrew Gautier Esq., in Trinity 
Church yard. 

This Stephen Crosfield came to New York prior to 1745, accompanied by three 
sisters, — Elizabeth, who married Andrew Gautier ; Mary, who married William 
Newton ; and Ann, who died a spinster. 

Can any one give me information of this family in England ? 

John S. Gautier.

respecting him beyond the mention of him in the wills, 1648 and 1657. It has been supposed that 
he may be possibly identical with Wm. Skinner, merchant, and Alderman of Hull, who died 19 
September, 1680, in the fifty-third year of his age, according to the inscription on his gravestone in 
the church of Holy Trinity, Hull. Proof of identity is so far, however, not forthcoming. Alder- 
man Skinner used the same arms that were granted to John Skynncr, 1557. Any facts tending to 
establish a connection between him and the Thornton family will oblige, and may be communicated 
direct to Mr. Jackson. The date of the age of Alderman Skinner on his monument may not bo 
quite correctly given. Monumental inscriptions are not always to be entirely depended upon as 
evidence. An instance occurs in this family. William Skinner, of Thornton College, son of Sir 
Vincent, is stated on his monument to have died "the 7th day of August, 1626," whereas the entry 
of his burial in the register is on the 8th of August, 1627 ; the latter year being supported by his 
will, which, dated 3rd August, 1627, was proved at Lincoln, 1st February, 1627-8. 

% De la Pryme, the Yorkshire antiquary, in his MS. History of Hull, says, — " 1639. In this year 
Mr. Andrew Marvel, Lecturer of this town, a very learned and ingenious and florid man, going over 
the Humber in a small boat or skiff, with Madam Skinner, of Thornton College, and a young couple 
who were going to be married, a storm rose on a sudden, which, in a little time, overset the boat, so 
that they were all drowned, and never found or heard of afterwards." The term Madam and Mis- 
tress was the usual description of young unmarried ladies of position formerly. 

* There is no township of Dorton in Lancashire, but there are three townships called Dalton,— 
one in Furness, one near Wigan, and a third near Kendal. If the Crosfields were Quakers, which, 
from the printed extracts, does not seem to have been the case, Dalton-in-Furness, which is near 
George Fox's adopted home, was probably the place from which they sprang. 




I have just compiled the following pedigree of this family, entirely from original 
and authentic sources, and should be glad of any additions to it. It was un- 
doubtedly of French origin, although the later members of it appear to have given 
the name a Spanish termination. It is desirable to know whether the male line is 
extinct. Joseph Lemuel Chester,

ancient family of Croxton of Croxton Hall, Cheshire, and, if so, why the descendants 
of the above Rowland Egerton- Warburton quarter the arms of Croxton as " Sable a

Salvia. — John, second son of Sir Eoger Salvayn, of Herswell, died s. p. 19 
Hen. VI., leaving his property to the son of his eldest sister, Alice, who married 
Henry "Wilton. She had two sons by Henry Wilton, viz. — 

1. John Wilton, alias Salvin, who inherited his uncle John Salvin's fortune, 
but died, aged 16, 21 Hen. VI. 

2. Henry Wilton, alias Salvin. 

Can any correspondent acquainted with Durham genealogy inform me what 
were the arms borne by Henry Wilton, who married Alice Salvin, or by the sons 
of the said Alice, viz. John Wilton, alias Salvin, or her second son, Henry Wilton, 
alias Salvin ? 

A Somersetshire family named Wilton appears, from an Alphabet of arms in 
the Heralds' College, to have borne, Sable three water-bougets argent ; which coat 
is also found (but given to another name) in a splendid shield of Percy quarterings 
in Edmonson's ' Baronagium.' 

It is a curious coincidence that the Salvayns descended from a coheir of Robert, 
Lord E-os of Warke, with which name three water-bougets are, with variations of 
tincture, constantly associated. 

In indexes to pedigrees, and, perhaps, in Visitations duly enrolled, the name 
Wylton and Witton are considered synonymous ; perhaps arising from some self- 
evident, but slight alteration in crossing both the 1 and the t in entering the name. 

Wj/e-town and TTOy-town have each an aqueous derivation, and this is re- 
cognized in the water-bougets which both Wiltons and Wittons assume as partly 
or entirely their armorial bearings. 

There is a family of Johnson using the same arms as the Wiltons, viz. Or a 
water-bouget sable, on a chief of the second three bezants. E. W. 

Palmee. — . . . Palmer, of Lincoln's Inn, King's Mes- 
senger, married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Bate,f of 
Ash by de la Zouch, gent. This Mr. Palmer had an estate in 
Ireland. His seal, a woodcut of which is here given, is now 
in my possession. Arms: Argent a bend sable charged with 
three trefoils slipped of the field between two pellets. 
Crest : An arm erect holding a trefoil. I should be glad to 
have some account of this Mr. Palmer and his antecedents.

* Numbers of these names are not in the pedigree, and the majority, no doubt, belong to col- 

t The pedigree says, " Borne 1578." No other entry appears. Possibly this Thomas was the 
eldest son, and dying an infant, the name was perpetuated in the Thomas of 1578. By a marriage- 
settlement of 1708, and by the wardens' books, this Thomas and his father, Eandle, were the first 
to settle in Kingsley (about the end of Elizabeth's reign), where they occasionally dwelt, as did John 
and Bandolph, the sons of Thomas, at the Banke House, the Brooke House, and Kingsley Grange, 
or Hurst. 

% Along with "Ric. Stanley fil. Thome." Edward Stanley and Jane, his second wife, of Alvan- 
ley, were living about this time. He was of the house of Hooton. 

§ He was co- warden of Frodsham parish, and his father, Thomas, made a curious settlement,

Randolph. In 1672, his son John was also Churchwarden, along with Willm. Hyde, of Cat ten all, 
in Kingsley, Esq., a junior branch of the Hydes of Hyde, a quo the younger house of Clarendon,

cate entry as of Kingsley.

much for the parish in the matter of runaway marriages.

Gentleman, of the 3rd part (in pursuance of Articles of Agreement dated 5th day of Dec. 1703) ; 
and settles " Helsby Hall, otherwise the Moate House, in Helsby, lately in the occupacon of Ran- 
dolph Helsby, late of the Banke House, in Kingsley, Gentleman," and other lands in Chorlton, 
Backford, Acton, and Kingsley, upon the issue of the marriage in fee simple, carrying thereout a 
term of 200 years for the purpose of raising portions for daughters and younger sons. This, toge- 
ther with other Settlements, is by a counterpart Indenture, dated the 5th day of May, 1770, cove- 
nanted to be produced to certain purchasers.

+ She must have reached an extreme old age, as she was married in the reign of Henry VII., 
and this may account for the somewhat special form of entry, although her age is not mentioned. 

% These appear to be two Joans, probably mother and daughter ; but query whether it really 
means Joan, the widow of John Helsby, gentleman. Among several other entries of death in a 
Breeches Bible of 1610 are the three, Blanche, Margery, and Joan, in August and September, 1590, 
and they are there described as the daughters of Randle Helsby, of Helsby. — And see pedigree,

I, the Reverend William Charles Cotton, Clerk, Master of Arts, Vicar 
of the Parish and Parish Church of Frodsham, do hereby certify that I have 
examined the Extracts above mentioned relating to the family of Helsby, of 
Helsby, Kingsley, Alvanley, Frodsham, and Overton, and compared the 
same with the original Entries in the Register Books of the said Parish, 
and do hereby declare the same to be true and correct copies thereof. 
Dated at Overton, this tenth day of December, one thousand eight hundred 
and seventy. 

Wm. Chas. Cotton, M.A., 

Vicar of Frodsham. 

* A double entry, on separate pages. 

f This description, " Motehouse," must refer, not to James, but to Eandle, who occasionally- 
resided there, but which residence for nearly the whole of the seventeenth century was let as a farm. 
In the registers and parish accounts it is occasionally called " Helsby Hall" and " Helsby House," 
though another Helsby House existed in Alvanley, also an occasional residence of the family. 
In 1637, John Blimston occupied a pew on the north side of the parish church for " Helsbey 
House" (meaning the Moathouse or Hall), as tenant, after the wooden and oldest portion of the 
mansion had been destroyed by fire, temp. Jac. I. The remains of the building, being of stone, 
were then let as a farm, and in "1732. April 6. Mary Burgess of Helsbey Hall" (the wife or 
daughter of the then tenant) is mentioned in the registers as being buried ; but some time afterwards 
a second fire reduced the place to ashes. 

X In a.d. 1639, " Mr. Randle Helsby and John, Lord Viscount Savage," are mentioned in an 
old " Seat Role " as holding certain pews in the north-east corner of Frodsham Church, or the Helsby 
Chapel, and several other pews in other parts of the church were then held by other members of the 
family ; but before 1749 all the north-east pews were in the hands of purchasers, and only one or 
two remained. Notwithstanding all this and Frodsham evidently being the principal burial place 
(Alvanley Chapel was another), not a scrap of memorial- stone is to be found, though the aged 
sexton says that the remains of a rotten escutcheon and two banners (which had from time to time 
dropped in pieces on the site of the high-altar) on being taken down, crumbled to dust, with their 
staves, in the hands of his father upwards of half a century ago, when the church was undergoing 
its accustomed whitewashing. One remote branch of the family attributes this absence of tombstones 
to a fancied fraud, and tells an amusing story of his father some sixty years since taking down his 
attorney (or, perhaps the attorney taking down his father) to Frodsham and Runcorn, where they 
discovered the gravestones turned upside down, appropriated to other uses, with their inscriptions 
defaced, registers mutilated, and other signs of malpractices, all for the purpose of keeping them out 
of certain estates, which, it is needless to say, belonged to another line, and which generation after 
generation had wasted away, till the sale of the last acre a century ago and the removal of the 
family to another part of the shire.

Carew. — Dame Alice Stamford, widow of Sir William Stamford, Knt., Justice 
of the Common Pleas, who died in August, 1558, married, secondly, Roger Carew, 
Esq., of Monken Hadley (circa 1560), and by him had an only son, Henry Carew, 
Esq., also of Monken Hadley, who died unmarried December 12, 1G20, and was 
there buried. A Roger Carew was one of the burgesses of St. Alban's from 5th 
to 13th Elizabeth. Wanted to ascertain to what branch of the Carew family the 
said Roger and Henry belonged. F. C. Cass. 

Eotjke or Fowke. — There was formerly in Staffordshire a family of the name 
of Fouke or Fowke. One of them, Roger Fowke, of Brewood, bought Wyrley 
Grove from his relative, John Leveson, and married Joan Fowke. Their son 
Thomas married Mary, daughter of Henry Ferrers, of Baddesley Clinton, co. War- 
wick, and had issue Ferrers Fowke, of Little Wyrley, who married Frances, 
daughter of Morton Briggs, of Haughton Hall, co. Salop. Can any one supply 
the issue of this match and, if any, what became of them ? J. Fetherston. 

G-ibson oe Welburn. — At Welburn Hall, in North Yorkshire, a little more 
than a mile from Kirbymoorside, resided James Gibson, Esq., Town Clerk of Lon- 
don, whose daughter Elizabeth (query, Judith) married Thomas Strangways 
Robinson, of Pickering, Esq., — she died 1751. The last of the Robinsons who 
occupied the old hall was the Rev. John Robinson, lineally descended from Sir 
James Strangways, who, in the time of Henry VI., married Margaret, the elder of 
the two coheiresses of the last Lord D'Arcy Meinill. The younger married Sir 
John Conyers, ancestor of the present Duke of Leeds. The name of Strangways 
was exchanged for that of Robinson in accordance with the will of Luke Robinson 
Esq., of Riseborough, and M.P. for Scarborough. 

The woodcut represents a fine gold mounting to a lady's Malacca walking- cane, 
with crest on the top. I should be glad to know to whom this cane belonged. I 
got it from a cottage in the village of Welburn, and it was said to have been the 
walking-cane of " Johanna Gibson:' Edward Morton. 

Malton, 21 November, 1870. 

Captain Newsom, R.N. — Can any correspondent throw light on the parentage 
of this gentleman ? In Schomberg's ' Naval Records,' vol. i. p. 340, he is thus 
mentioned : — " Rear-Admiral Stevens blockading Pondicherry, sent the boats of 
his division, headed by Captain Newsome, who cut out two frigates with great gal- 
lantry." In ' Gentleman's Magazine for 1759, amongst the vessels which sailed 
from Kin sale is named the ' Roman Emperor,' of twenty guns, commanded by 
Captain Newsom. In his will, dated October, 1787, he is styled Captain Wm. 
Newson, R.N., and mentions his four daughters, — Sarah, wife of Ambrose Cor- 
deroy ; Mary Ann, wife of Geo. Paterson ; Caroline, wife of . . . Davis ; and 
Elizab'et, subsequently wife of John Strongi'th'arm, engraver, of Pall Mall (see 
Gent.'s Mag.). There can be little doubt of the present firm of Strongi'th'arm of 
Pall Mall being either descendants or collaterals of this last marriage.

kindred lie. Maria Brian, her niece, styled a widow in the Probate, is left sole Executrix. As her 
late niece Ann had not in her disposal any of the £750, left to her by her Aunt Elizabeth, the Tes- 
tatrix leaves £750 to each of her nieces Harriott and Henrietta, sisters of the said Ann. She like- 
wise bequeaths £10 to each of them for mourning &c.

John Casamajor, of Maeylebone, 1795. 

John Casamajor Esq. of Suffolk Street, Marylebone. Will dated 27 June 1795. First Codicil 
1 July 1800. Second Codicil 14 Feb. 1804. Proved 26 March 1814. Desires to be opened after 
death and embalmed, but a Codicil revokes the embalming but directs the opening. It also revokes 
a certain clause relating to the investment of a sum of money in Trustees, and finally Augustus 
Hankey Esq., Banker of Fenchurch Street is instituted sole Executor. To his Housekeeper, by 
one of his Codicils, he leaves an annuity, This said annuity is signed by Justinian Casamajor jun r of 
Potterells County Hertford as a witness. Probably his nephew, son of his brother Justinian, who 
owes him under a Bond, upwards of £3000. Alludes to property in the Government Securities. 
Leaves the bulk of his property to his five nieces, Mary, Anne, Elizabeth, Henrietta and Caroline. 

James Henry Casamajor, Esq., oe London, 1805. 
In the Prerogative Office there. 

James Henry Casamajor Esq. of Wimpole Street Manchester Square co. Middlesex. Will dated 
the 20 th of June 1805. Codicil 5 th of October 1811. Proved the 11 th of October 1815. He died 
the 23 rd of January in the latter year, aged 70. Leaves £300 to his wife Elizabeth, daughter of 
Sir James Campbell of Inverary, for mourning, to each of his children for mourning £100, and £50 
to his natural daughter Rebecca for the same purpose. Mentions property in Government Tontine 
shares ; in Westminster Assurance, in Grand Junction Canal Shares, Legacy to the servant of his 
deceased mother, at Madras — mentions in the list of his Executors " my Cousin John Casamajor 
Esq r ." " my Cousin now of Suffolk Street." Further Probates were granted the 21 st of March 1818 
and 27 th of March 1837 at which latter period his Cousin John Casamajor appears to have been dead. 

The Codicil provides that as by the Will a great many are left Executors who are resident in 
London, a certain number resident at Madras shall be further appointed among whom is one John 
Casamajor Esq. The Codicil is dated at Madras. An affidavit as to his handwriting describes him 
as James Henry Casamajor Esq. of Manchester Square. 

Justinian Casamajor, Esq., of Hertfordshire, 1816. 
In the Prerogative Office, London. 
Justinian Casamajor Esq. of Potterells in the Parish of North Minims eo. Hertford. Will dated 
2 nd September 1816. Two Codicils Proved 29 th August 1820. Mentions his sons Justinian, George- 
John, Louis-Duncan, William- Charles and his daughters Emma, Henrietta, Caroline, Lydia and his 
son in law John Vernon Esq. Desires to be buried as near to the remains of his Wife as possible, but 
the Codicil specifies that if he die at Pitton in Devonshire he is to be buried there. Alludes to Property 
in Bristol and some share in a Tontine property. His grandson Justinian, son of his son-in-law J ohn 
Vernon Esq. to assume the Arms and name of Casamajor. Leaves Justinian, John, and William 
his sons Executors, but by Codicil revokes the appointment of Justinian, Also a M r Newman his 
friend, who is the Executor that proves, power being reserved to the others. Mentions also consi- 
derable property in the Island of Antigua. John by the concluding portion would seem at that 
time to have been abroad in the East Indies. The Will is of great length, and particularizes the 
disposition of some of his Jewels and Rarities with some articles of Vertu, of which he appears to 
have had a costly stock. The celebrated Macklin Bible is to continue as a heirloom in his family, 
also some Globes left him by General Hervey, and Valuables from Lady Carhampton. Potterells 
would seem to have been devised by his friend Charles (or C. L. S.) Delach, to him and another as 
tenants in common. Various legacies are also bequeathed especially to his servants. The second 
Codicil affords the reason for excluding Justinians name as one of the Executors, viz. not from any 
diminution of love, but that he, Justinian, is already much engaged. The property would seem to 
be generally in the Counties of Hertfordshire, Middlesex, and Lincoln. 

Louis-Duncan Casamajor, Esq., 1820. 
In the Prerogative Office, London. 
Administration to the effects of Louis-Duncan Casamajor Esq. late Minister Plenipotentiary at

attested, as Testators handwriting by Edward Pike of Parliament Street the 13 th September, and 
proved the 17 th of September, the same year. Commences by fearing that he has mislaid a former 
Will to the same effect as the present one, made some time ago. Leaves all he possesses to Sarah 
Pallett, his servant, who has lived with him for these 1 years past, and whose conduct he eulogizes 
at some length. Knows of no one who has more claim on him than she. Had but little to bequeath 
to her & wishes it were more. Leaves Jewelry Pictures Furniture &c. to her. To his Executors 
Philip Augustus Hanrott Esq. Solicitor, and M r Thomas Poole his former Landlord he leaves £50 
a piece. Entreats Sarah Pallett to give Emma £20 if she can afford it.

writing. The Executors named are Emma and Caroline Lydia Casamajor and William Charles 

Henry Casamajor, Esq., op Bath, 1824.

Somerset formerly of Great House, Upper Tockington co. Gloucester, bachelor. Will dated 4 th of 
January 1824. Handwriting attested to, the 1 st J an?, & proved 4 March same year. Desires to be

church of Newton S l Loe with the bequests painted thereon. Leaves to his only surviving sister 
Harriett whose income is much greater than her expenditure £300. Bequests are also made to W m 
Charles Casamajor of Potterells, co. Herts son of the late Justinian Casamajor Esq. & to M rs Casa-

of money together with his furniture as mentioned in a schedule annexed to the Will. To his 
niece M rs Mary Ann Tonge wife of W m Norris Tonge Esq. a legacy. To his nephews Sir Gilbert

two Codicils the first being the schedule of the Plate, Trinkets, Miniatures &c. including portraits of 
his father & mother bequeathed to his only sister Harriett, the other a schedule of the furniture 
bequeathed to his housekeeper. In the attestation to his handwriting this Will is stated to have 
several interlineations & erasures and is described as found in an Escritoire after Testators death. 

Inscription upon a Tablet in the Church at Newton St. Loe, Co. Somerset. 

Henry Casamajor, Esq., bequeathed to the Rector and

3 per Cent., upon Trust, to apply the dividends in repairing 
the Graves, Iron -Railings, Base and Tombs respectively of 
the Testator, M rs Henrietta Davies and Robert Gooden, 
Esq. and Elizabeth his wife, and in preserving this Tablet 
and to distribute the remainder (if any) within 14 days after 
received among such Poor of this Parish, as they in their con 
sciences should think right and proper. 
The Rev. Richard Warner of this Parish, and John F. 
Davis M.D., Royal Crescent, Bath, Executors. Stock invested

married to Kev. Henry Higginson, Louisa married to Charles Farquharson, Esq. and Agnes Mar- 
garet, unmarried at the date of the Will. By an addition to the Will providing for her son's three 
daughters, should he James Archibald marry again, it is probable that he was a widower at the 
dating thereof. The daughters names are given as Jane, Mary, and Elizabeth. 

The two witnesses who sign the Will are named Campbell. She alludes to portrait of her uncle 
Sir Archibald Campbell as also to her own. Mentions a house No. 10 Manchester Sq re also a con- 
siderable amount of property. Her son James Archibald Casamajor, with Mess rs Russell Brown- 
rigg Higginson & Farquharson are appointed Executors.

Haydon, Warham, Parsons, and Wilcoxon. — Let me inquire through your 
columns if any of your readers can give information respecting William, John, or 
James Hay den, or Haydon, believed to be brothers, who emigrated from England 
(the first supposed from Devonshire) to Massachusetts, America, in 1630 and 
1635 ; or of Rev. J ohn Warham, who was " an eminent minister of the Church of 
England in Exeter, Eng.,"— emigrated with William Hay den, 1630 ; or of Joseph 
Parsons, supposed of Great Milton, Oxfordshire, who emigrated about same time ; 
or of " W m Wilcoxson, Lynen Wever," who, with wife and one child, emigrated, 
1635, from St. Alban's Parish, Hertfordshire, with certificates from parish minister 
and from magistrates, " according to the Lord's order." Any information of these 
persons and their antecedents will be thankfully received. 

Horace Edwin Hayden. 

Pt. Pleasant, West Virginia, U. S. 

Wright. — Peter, Nicholas, and Anthony Wright, brothers, emigrated from 
England to New England about 1636-7, and settled first at Sangus (now Lynn), 
Massachusetts, afterwards at Sandwich, and subsequently removed to Oyster Bay, 
Long Island, N. Y. Were they of the family of Edmund or of Nicholas Wright, 
of East Lexham, Norfolk, temp. Henry VIII., who married sisters, daughters of 
Edmund Beaupre, of Beaupre Hall, Norfolk ? Nicholas is said to have had five 
children : what were their names, and what became of them ? Edmund married 
a second wife, Jane, daughter and coheir of Thomas Russell, brother to John, Earl 
of Bedford, by whom he had six children, William, Edmund, George, Thomas, 
Edward, and Bridget. 

There was a William Wright, one of the Incorporators of Plymouth, in New 
England, in 1633, who removed to Sandwich, in Massachusetts, where he died in 
April, 1648. Was he the son of Edmund above named ? I. J. L. 

Heron Family of Godmanchester (p. 43). — In 1588, Edward Heron, of 
Stamford, was Recorder of the borough. He was afterwards knighted. Purchased 
Cressy Hall of the Noels ; and, in 1607, appointed one of the Barons of the Ex- 
chequer. Prom the registers of St. George's, Stamford, I append the following 
extracts : — 

1583. Anne Heron y e wife of M Heron, bur. y e xiij day of May. 

1584. John Heron, the sonne of M r Heron bapt. the xj day of Aprill being Wed- 


1600. The tenth day of October, Annabella Heron, the daughter of M r Edward 

Heron, gent, was bapt. 
1618. Robart Heron & Isabel Walker were mar. the 14 of Nov. 

Sir Edw. Heron was one of the Commissioners appointed, 21 Jac. I., to inquire 
into the charities of the co. of Lincoln ; and in 1582, Edw. Heron (the same per- 
son), by deed dated 4th April, enfeoffed certain trustees therein mentioned and 
their heirs of a toft and barn, with the appurtenances, in the town and fields of 
Tallington (in this county), in trust, to apply the rents and profits towards the 
relief of the poor people of Tallington, and towards easing them from any assess- 
ment to be made for repairing the nave or body of the church, and for repairs of 
bridges, and towards payment of subsidies and ease of the poor people aforesaid, 
upon any assessment, fifteenths, or other lawfull, necessary, and charitable pay- 
ments, and rights, and for any other use, necessary and lawful cause whatsoever.

Ravenscroft (p. 79). — The arms of Ravenscroft are given in a pedigree of 
the Chambre family in my possession. They are, Argent a chevron between three 
ravens' heads erased sable. Martha the daughter of William* Ravenscroft, of 
Ravenscroft, married Hugh Chambre. This accounts for the introduction of the 
Ravenscroft arms in the Chambre pedigree. R. Chambre- Vaughan.

Norfolk, and Beccles, Suffolk, will be most acceptable to Ira. B. Peck.

William de la More. — English Grand Prior of the Knights Templars in 
1310 : of what family was he, what were their armorial bearings, and what was 
the seal of Office of this Grand Prior ? — that of one of his predecessors is attached 
to Magna Charta. In case any of your readers have this information, they might 
save my time by addressing me direct. John Yarker.

Woodruffe of Alvltstgtois", Co. Gloucester. — Seal and autograph of Eobert 
Woodruffe, of Alvington, co. G-loucester, Esquire, to a transfer of lands in Alving- 

ton from the said Eobert Woodruffe to " William Compton of Clannye within the 
parish of Alvington Esquyre, Lord of the Manor of Alvington aforesayde," dated 
18 April, 1603. 

Hyde Family (p. 41). — Some years ago the original marriage- settlement of 
Dodding Braddyll, of Conishead Priory, Esq., M.P., w r as in my hands, and I re- 
member his wife's name was Mary, and that she was a daughter of Samuel Hyde, 
of London, Esq., deceased, and, 1 believe, Mary, his wife, then a widow ; the date 
was the 13 Anne, a.d. 1714. I had also the original pedigree, by Heard, Norroy, 
and Brooke, Rouge Croix (date the close of last century, and which recited that the 
first eight or nine descents were copied from an ancient parchment roll in the posses- 
sion of Wilson Braddyll, of Conishead Priory, Esq.), which stated that Mary (Hyde) 
Braddyll died in 1771, and was buried at Woodford, with her husband, who was 
born in 1689 and died in 1748. The emblazoned arms were those usually borne 
by the Hydes (azure a chevron between three mascles or), but whether they came 
from Lancashire or were of the Clarendon stock, I regret, I cannot say ; but I may 
observe that both before and after this marriage, the Braddyils held tenements in 
or about Chancery Lane and other parts of London, some of which may have come 
from the Hydes. A privately printed ' History of Samlesbury,' about to be issued 
from the Chiswick Press, will give a little fuller information ; and a copy of the 
pedigree of Braddyll, intended to be published in a future number of the ' Miscel- 
nanea Genealogica,' (Quarterly Series,) will also show the marriage to which I 
allude. ° T. Helsby. 

Richard de Haldlngham, circa 1300-20 (p. 22).— Mr. Hayergal will find an 
Aldingham in Lonsdale, in Lancashire, once possessed by the Harringtons of Hornby 
Castle. It is not at all improbable that the shire which gave to the Diocese of 
Hereford a ruler in a Lancashire man, Charles Boothe (the nephew of the brothers 
William and Lawrence Boothe, Archbishops of York, 1464-1480), should also have 
given to Hereford a prebendary a century and a half earlier. I think the first 
known Harrington was — according to a very good Blackburne pedigree, extracted 
from the Heralds' College (Norfk. X. and XXI.)— John de Harrington, of Ald- 
ingham, Parliamentary Baron (per writ), 18 Edw. II. to his decease 21 Edw. III. 
Perhaps this information may lead to the discovery of an Aldingham pedigree and 
the identity of Richard de (H) aldingham. T. Helsby. 



Grantham : Skinner. — In vol. xlvii. of the publications of the Surtees So- 
ciety (Dean Granville's Letters, etc.), at page 119, is a letter of advice from the 
Dean to Mr. Corbett Skinner upon his going to sea in April, 1683. In this com- 
munication the writer exhorts young Skinner to do his duty " to S r Tho. Grrantho," 
and others of the ship. I incline to think this is a mistake for Grantham. I shall 
be obliged by information as to this Sir Thomas Grantham, or Grrantho, if such 
really is the name, — what ship he commanded, when and where he died, etc. Also 
as to Corbett Skinner, — who he was, and what became of him.

Jenkin Family or Yorkshire (p. 84). — I send you the following extract 
from our Cathedral register : —

Alice W agstaffe by Licence. 
1689. Oct. 22, Alice Dau. to Peter "Wagstaffe of Manchester Baptized. 

These Wagstaffes were descended from an old family long resident in the parish 
of Grlossop, Derbyshire. John Owen. 


Paryish Family. — In Cooke's ' London Visitation of 1568 ' (Harleian Society), 
Henry Parvish, of London, merchant, is shown to have a son Thomas. Are any 
notices of this son extant, and where, if so, are they to be met with ? One of the 
name, and probably the person noted fin the pedigree of the Colstons, was Head 
Master of Chester Grammar School from 1567 to 1578, and was, in other ways, 
evidently a man of some mark. T. Hughes, F.S.A. 


Arms. — The following arms, surmounted by a cardinal's hat, are from a seal in , 
my possession : — On a saltire between four leaves (? holly) a heart pierced with 
an arrow ; surrounded by this inscription, " not. apost. p. m. e. k. a." I am 
anxious to know to whom this seal belonged. Philip Langman. 

Latton, Daunce, and Sycheyyle Families. — I should be greatly obliged 
if any information can be afforded me concerning the families of Latton, Daunce, 
or Sychevyle. Several members of the two former are buried in the church of St. 
Michael, Blewbury, Berks, and the brasses on their tombs still remain in good pre- 
servation. From one of these it appears that Sir John Daunce was " Counsellor 
& Surveyor Greneral " to King Henry VIII. The Lattons seem to have come 
originally from Latton, in Wilts, thereafter to have resided in Bucks, and subse- 
quently to have settled at Upton and Chilton, Berks. I have been able to hear 
nothing of the Sychevyles, but their arms, viz. ermine three crossbows or, are 
quartered with those of Latton, Estbury, and Percy, on one of the brasses before 
mentioned. , 

I also enclose a copy of a shield of arms, apparently a chevron between three 
geese or swans, from the porch of the old manor-house of East Coker, Somerset, 
and I should be glad to know to what family it may be assigned. 

Wm. H. Richardson. 

Mudd Family. — I have a deed, between Strangeways Mudd, citizen and 
stationer, of London, and William Martyn, of London, gentleman, relating to 
estates in the City, dated 1687. The deed is witnessed by Sol. Chilcott and John 
Bradshaw. I should be glad of any information of the family of Strangeways 
Mudd. Edward Morton. 





The above is a facsimile of the signature of Mary, dowager Countess of Cas- 
silis (the widow of John, 7th Earl) appended to a deed of bargain and sale, now 
in the possession of Dr. Fox, of Brislington, co. Somerset. 

It is remarkable that this lady is wrongly described in all the Peerages. In 
"Wood's edition of ' Douglas's Scotch Peerage,' published 1813, she is described as 
" Miss Elizabeth (or Mary) Eoix," and there is a curious note showing that the 
claim of peerage made by her and Lady Mordington was not allowed by the House 
of Lords, on 29 April, 1745, against any prosecution for " suppressing the public 
gaming-houses kept by the said Ladies." This deed, which is dated 2 May, 1711 
(10 Anne), as between Mary Fox, widow relict of John Fox late of Lincolns Inn 
fields co. Middlesex Esq., & dau. of Thomas Weld, late Citizen & Grocer of Lon- 
don dec d of one part ; Robert Fox, eldest son & heir, Mary, Countess Dowager of 
Cassilis, one of the daughters, James Fox & George Fox, two other sons, Anne Fox, 
Sp r & Joyce Fox Sp r two other of the dau's of the s d Mary Fox of the second 
part; and Daniel Bodson of Bernard's Inn, London, Gent, of the 3 d part. After 
reciting that the s d Thomas Weld, by his will dat. 12 April 1678, devised 2 newly 
built messuages in Lombard street & Sherborne lane, London, in the parish of S fc 
Mary Wolnoth, to his wife Joyce Weld for her life, with rem. to his dau. the said 
Mary Fox, and that the said Joyce Weld is long since dead. It witnesseth that the 
s d Mary Fox, with consent of her said children, conveys the s d premises to the 
said Daniel Dodson in trust for the said James Fox & Anne Fox equally. 

The Countess's signature is witnessed by " Richard Bradley, next door to y e 
Lady Cassilis at Hammersmith," and by " William Shand, Lady Cassilis' Gentle- 

The seal for all parties is the same, viz. " A cross, between 4 fleur de lis ;" the 
crest being " an eagle's head couped." Query if not the coat and crest of Banks of 
Yorkshire ? 

The following pedigree, which shows the ancestry of the Countess, is compiled 
from the Visitations of London in 1664 and of Hertfordshire in 1669 (both printed 
in italics), and from the will of Thomas Weld in 1678, the above deed, and other 
authentic sources.

Mr. Beynon has likewise given me (October 28, 1870) the subjoined corrobo- 
ration of the marriage solemnized between Charles Price of Somerset House, Esq., 
and Miss Phillips of Witston, mentioned in my former note : — 

" Miss Mary Phillips was I have no doubt married in the Church of this Parish 
about the date you mention " (1780) "or a year before, but unfortunately the Old 
Register of Marriages of this Parish is lost. We have no entry of Marriages in 
our present Register prior to 1816, and to prove this fact I was summoned on a 
trial brought by Price in the Guild Hall London, when the marriage of Mary Phil- 
lips with Charles Priced was proved to satisfaction of the jury from family docu-

Floyek Family. — The subjoined pedigree of a branch of the Floyer family- 
was found by me among the family papers at Whitfield, in this county (the seat of 
the Rev. Archer Clive), and had evidently been prepared for the purpose of showing 
the consanguinity of the later representatives to the founder of Wadham College, 
Oxford. C. J. Robinson.

* Mr. Hunter had a suspicion that the second wife was the sister of the first. There is some 
allusion to an intrigue between Mr. Jenkyns and Lady Elizabeth Pawlet in the letters of Rachael, 
Lady Russell. The old Baronetages, under Goodrick, speak of Mr. Jenkyns's first wife, showing 
that he had a second. The register at Dunnington calls the two children merely the children of 
" Tobias Jenkyns, Esq.," not mentioning any wife. 

_ t His seal shows a lion rampant regardant, with Monro on an escutcheon of pretence. Crest : 
a lion passant. Supposed to have been the Wm. Jenkyns who went on the Carthagenian expedition, 
1739, and to have been an officer in Colonel Robinson's Marines, raised in Yorkshire, afterwards in 
the Horse Guards. Colonel Robinson was distantly related to W. J.'s family.

Lattghto^ Family (Quarterly Series, "Vol. II. pp. 258-9). — The following 
extract from a letter of the Rev. John-Haldenby Clark in reference to the family 
of Laughton may not be uninteresting : — 

" Though, as you observe, the name does not seem to have been of any great 
importance in Lincolnshire, it occurs tolerably early. In 3 Eliz., Thos. Laughton 
and Gilbert Greene were Churchwardens at Aslackby in that co. : about the same 
date Peter Laughton was Curate of Ewerby (Peacock's ' Church Monuments,' pp. 
31-2 and 80), and a William Laughton was ejected by the Act of Conformity from 
the living of Westborough, co. Line. At Gainsborough in later times it seems to 
have obtained some hold; for the mother of James Cawthorne (born 1719) of 
Clare Coll. Cambridge and Master of Tonbridge School was Mary d. of Mr. Edward 
Laughton of Gainsborough. Cawthorne' s father was Thomas C. of Sheffield 
(Hunter's ' Hallamshire,' orig. ed. p. 176) and at the election of 1832 (Northern 
Division of Lincolnshire) two Laughtons voted for freeholds at Gainsborough — 
John Laughton of Gainsborough and Wm. Laughton of Doncaster. As to the 
later generations of the Laughtons of Eastfield, I find that Edmund Laughton 
when he voted at the Great West Kiding Election of 1841 is described as of Dou- 
glas, Isle of Man, so that his descendants, if he left any, may be found, perhaps in 
that Island. At the same time a W. (Eastfield) Laughton voted whose residence 
was Tickhill. Whether Eastfield refers only to his residence, or was his Christian 
name, which the Poll Book seems to assert, I am not aware." 

I conclude with portion of a communication from Charles Jackson, Esq., of 
Doncaster : — 

" There were some Laughtons in the part of the country called the Isle of 
Axholme, viz. about Epworth. Belton, etc., co. Lincoln. I have seen the name in 
deeds occasionally, but I have no notes concerning them." 

Charles Sotiteran". 

* William Floyer was appointed Prebendary of Church Withington in Hereford Cathedral in 
1716, and was succeeded in his stall by William Willim in 1752.

widow of William Methwolde, married there 3 April, 1581, Edward Swayne, of All

Jenkins (pp. 84, 122). — I have deeds, as trustee, connected with this family, 
who, in fact, are related to us : all being well, I shall presently have to go through 
them. They had relatives in Yorkshire. I am quite certain as to the following, 
— John Jenkins, of Saltley Hall, Warwickshire; . . . Jenkins, of Northfield 
(whose descendants have still property there) ; Lucius Chattock Jenkins, late of 
Sutton Coldfield, and others. There are also Kettles in the same neighbour- 
hoods. Some of the family are still living, and I will make a point of seeing them.

Moule's "Heraldry op Trees and Birds." — In the 'Gentleman's Maga- 
zine ' for August, 1851, is a memoir of Thomas Moule, in which it is stated that 
he left in manuscript a work entitled "The Heraldry of Trees and Birds." As 
his work ' Heraldry of Fish,' published by Van Voorst in 1842, is a most interesting 
book, as well as beautifully printed and illustrated, it is a pity that the companion 
work should remain unpublished. Can any of your readers say in whose posses- 
sion the manuscript now is ? A. W. M.

recording the foundation of Heryngham Priory by William Dawtree, the Monasticon thus speaks : 
' The latin word Ripa, was in Norman writings generally meant for a river, without relation to Ripa 
a bank. The Romans called it Raultrey. There was an ancient family of knights, owners of much 
lands in these parts, and of fair possessions, even in the very bosom of the high stream from which 
they took their name, and were called Be Haultrey? The ancient house here alluded to was the 
stem of many important branches, the most flourishing of which was that planted in the county of 
Sussex, at Moor House in Petworth, not very far from Battle Abbey itself. It produced a series 
of knightly generations, which held the highest rank in their country, and intermarried with its 
noblest families. . . . Another branch, sprung from De Alta Ripa, is now represented by Benjamin 
Dealtby, Esq., Lofthouse-hall, co. York."— vide 'The Roll of Battle Abbey, annotated by John 
Bernard Burke, Esq.,' 1848, pp. 48-9. William De-Alta-Ripa founded 1185 a Cistercian Nunnery 
at Gokwelle, co. Lincoln, which was granted, 30 Henry VIII., to Sir William Tirwhit.

* He was stated — ' Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' Quarterly Series, Vol. II. p. 260 — to 
have died in 1761 and to have been Member in the National Irish Parliament for Athy ; this is an 
error, it was his kinsman James Mac Manus of Maynooth, Esq., who died in that year and was the 
Member for Athy. 

f " Bellisle, described in 1834 as — one of those graceful, incipient ruins in which — ' Decay's 
effacing fingers — Have swept the lines where beauty lingers,' — is now restored to more than its 
pristine elegance. The mansion, though plain, is substantial and commodious, commanding, we 
believe, the finest view which can be obtained (except from a considerable and uninhabitable eleva- 
tion) of the upper Lake " (i. e. Lough Erne) " and its numerous isles. The plantation is old, and 
comprises several yew groves, which are venerable enough to have furnished bow-staves to the war- 
riors and hunters of the Mac Manuses, who, in the days of the red deer and wolf, lorded it over 
this island as their home and citadel. Tradition places a monastery, with which the old yews have 
probably some connexion, upon this island. . . . Whether a monastery existed here or not, Bellisle, 
or rather Bally Mac Manus, the old name of the place, is interesting as having been the residence 
of Cathal Maguire, a learned writer, who here, in the 14th. century, compiled one of the best collec- 
tions of the Annals of Ireland which we still possess, and which are known as ' The Annals of 
Ulster.' " vide ' Wakeman's Lough Erne,' pp. 64-5. 

X At G-ola, near Lough Erne, was a monastery founded by MacManus, Lord of the place, and 
granted at the suppression of the monastic houses, to Sir John Davis, Knight. 

§ " The county " (i. e. Fermanagh) " abounds in Lakes. Hence it was called in Irish, Feor- 
magk-eanagh, ' the Country of the Lakes.' It was made shire ground in the 11th. of Elizabeth ; 
being then in a very unsettled state, and divided between two powerful septs — the Mac Manuses 
and the Mac Guires." vide—" Ireland : Its Scenery, Character, &c. by Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Hall,"

The following incident in the escape of Charles II., whilst under the guidance of Eichard Pen- 
derell, is taken from the 4 Worcestershire Miscellany ' (Worcester, 1831, Edwin Lees) : — 

44 They reached Madeley about midnight, and proceeded to a large stone mansion then inhabited 
by a royalist gentleman of the name of Woolf who, however, tired of the confusion and insecurity 
of the times (his son being at that moment a prisoner at Shrewsbury), on being roused from his 
sleep, refused to compromise his safety for any person less than the King. Eichard Penderell upon 
this discovered Charles, who was rather uneasy, but had no cause to repent this confidence, as the 
old cavalier instantly paid him every attention ; but as on former occasions the hiding places of the 
house had been discovered and republican troopers were in the neighbourhood, it was deemed most 
prudent to shelter him in an adjoining barn, behind the corn and hay. During the remainder of 
the night and the whole of the next day, here Charles and Penderell remained ; but in the dusk of 
evening Mr. Woolf and his son, who had been released from captivity, came and brought, them some 
refreshment, but advised the King by no means to attempt the passage of the Severn, as it was 
strictly guarded and the boats seized. Charles instantly decided for a return to Boscobel, thinking 

* Communicated by Eichard Woof, F.S.A., F.E.S.L., etc. , continued from pp. 125-6. 


he should then hear of Lord Wilmot, with whom he had still an idea of reaching London, Leaving 
Madeley, therefore, Mrs. Woolf having first darkened his face and hands with walnut leaves, they 
set off in the dark, at eleven o'clock, to avoid the Evelin miller, waded through the stream that 
turned his mill, reaching Boscobel House about five o'clock, having first heard at John Penderel's in 
their way, that Lord Wilmot was concealed at Mr. Whitgreave's of Moseley Hall, eight miles dis- 
tant, and that Major Carlis, having escaped from Worcester (where Blount says he saw the ' last 
man kil'd'), was now at Boscobel House for safety, thinking his own residence of Brom Hall, in the 
vicinity, insecure." 

This account may have been derived from the following sources : — " The Civil W arres of Great 
Britain and Ireland, containing an exact history of their occasion, original, Progress, and happy 
end " : London, 1661. " Boscobel or the compleat History of His sacred Majesty's most miraculous 
preservation after the Battle of Worcester " : ' Gentleman's Magazine,' v. 59, 1739 ; and Worcester, 
1769. " An account of the preservation of King Charles 2. after the Battle of Worcester, drawn 
up by himself" : Glasgow, 1766, from a MS. in Mag. Coll. Cambridge. From this latter account it 
appears that the younger Woolfe had been released and arrived at home before the King left.

Although, so far as it goes, the pedigree of this family is correctly given by Sir 
Bernard Burke in his ' Landed Gentry,' it is, nevertheless, defective in collateral 
branches, and therefore it is hoped that the present contribution of authentic 
materials may lead to others investigating the subject. 

The family is supposed to have sprung from a soldier of fortune, who came to 
England from the Low Countries during the Wars of the Roses, and probably 
about 1471, in which year Edward IV. landed a body of Flemish auxiliaries in 

The elder line of this family has occupied Leyburn Hall, Yorkshire, for four 
centuries, during which period it has given off, it appears, only two branches, viz. 
one settled on the borders of Durham circa 1500, and the other in Westmoreland 
circa 1656. From these three there can scarcely be a question that all of the name 
in England are descended, considering local circumstances and the extreme rarity 
of the name.

* Parents of William, who had a son in 1549 (?). 

f From one of these probably descend the Yarkers of Barton, Ovington, and Rookby. 

% The Cumberland Hodgsons — represented by David Hodgson, Esq., of Scotby, J. Yarker, Jr., 
of Manchester, and General Hodgson — are believed to be of Yorkshire descent, settled in Cumber- 
land circa 1500, and connected with the Lascelles and other old Yorkshire families. 

§ From her will, at Carlisle, it would seem that her family name was Winter, and that she had 
a brother-in-law, Henry Yarker, who probably had a son, as a Thomas was resident at Kirkby 
Stephen about 1761. Michael and Henry, there is no doubt, would be near relatives of John Yarker, 
whose issue by marriage with Anne Leyburn are recorded by Burke. John Yarker (died 1753) left 
three sons : I. Robert, the ancestor of the Yarkers of Ulverstone and Isleworth. II. John (born 1730, 
died 1809), married (1762) Margaret, daughter of John Bradley, gentleman, Knipe, and his wife 
Jane Nicholson, and left issue, — I. Thomas (born 1766, died 1841) ; II. William (born 1770, died 
1814), married (1803) Anne Day, of London, and has issue Rev. Wm. Yarker, Vicar of Ravenstone- 
dale, co. Westmoreland. 1st, Elizabeth (twice married at Whitehaven) ; 2nd, Jane ; 3rd, Anne. 
Their eldest son Thomas married Grace, daughter of John Steely, and his wife Margaret Stoddart, 
statesmen, Great Salkeld, and had issue an only son, John Yarker, of Manchester (born 1809), married 
(1832) Anne, daughter of John Fell, statesman, and his wife Mary, daughter of John Bewley, by his 
wife Julian Hodgson, sole surviving heiress of John Hodgson (married Julian Howord), elder brother 
of Field-Marshal Studholme Hodgson, who married Catherine, daughter of Field-Marshal Sir Geo. 
Howord. They were sons of John Hodgson, collector of Customs, Wormanby. The third brother, 
Thomas (born 1740, died 1806), married and had issue. — Thomas, George, John, James, from 
whom descend the Yarkers of Westmoreland, now represented by Robert, of Cambridge University, 
and Richard, of Shap.

Note to Chaddock Pedigeee (p. 134). — The writer of this note would be 
exceedingly obliged by any information respecting the family of Chaddock or 
Chattock. He has more than a thousand documents from temp. Henry II. to the 
present time, containing some eight thousand names, from which he would be most 
happy to reciprocate, as he has already done with more than one reader of this Mis- 
cellany. There is a seal appended to one of them (anterior in date to this Visitation), 
with the cross of these arms upon a shield. Fairbairn's ' Crests ' has for Chadock, 
" on a ducal coronet or, a martlet gules." Dugdale never saw these charters and 
deeds, but Mark Noble did, as he was decidedly of opinion that the name origi- 

* Dr. Vaughan stated in the ' Athenseum ' in 1861, that this chapel, Spreswell, Ovington, was 
the place where Wycliffe was born. He quotes John Chapman, a gentleman of respectable position 
in G-ainsford, as saying, — " Spreswel, or Speswel, stood close to the river Tees, half a mile from 
Wycliffe and on the same side of the river. There was a chapel there, in which were married Wil- 
liam Yarker and Penitent Johnston, and their son John related the occurrence to me, his grandson, 
many times. The above couple were the last married there, for soon after the chapel fell down." 
There seem to be many scattered descendants of this couple living in the North Riding of York- 
shire and one of them settled in Manchester, from Barnard Castle, fifty years ago. 

t His will, proved at York, 1763, mentions his cousins William Yarker, of Ovington, and Wm. 
Yarker, of Barton, yeomen. 



nated from the Chad of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (p. 55, Ingram), and Chad of 
Lichfield ; if so, which is most probable, a brother, or nephew, or cousin of the 
Bishop must have settled in the diocese. The etymon of " Chadshunt," Warwick- 
shire, is clearly indicative of the presence of a layman of that name. The fol- 
lowing short scheme is confirmatory of Noble's opinion : — 

In the ' Teutonic Name System ' of Ferguson it states that " there is perhaps 
no more ancient or interesting name than Catomore. — Catumerus mentioned as the 
chief of a German tribe by Tacitus. Grimm (' Deutsche Grammatik ') holds this 
name to contain the most ancient form of Chad.- War. We have names exhibiting 
the various corresponding forms, viz. Chad, Chaddock, Chattock, Chatto, and Catto. 
So I do not think there is any thing fanciful in the suggestion that we have a name 
which can be traced up to the time of Tacitus. Ock comes to us through the 
Anglo-Saxon." The "more" in Catomore is a suffix, and means illustrious. See 
also Forstemann's ' Altdeutsches Namenbuch.' " No language has dealings in 
meaningless terminations. In ancient Celtic oc means young. Ock, like ing, is a 
genetival suffix." — Philological Society's Papers. " According to historical origin, 
the syllable ock is Anglo-Saxon and Gothic." — Dr. Latham, Professor of the 
English Language. 

The diminutive ock in Chadock is a genetival suffix, expressive of cadency, the 
same as the diminutival suffix ock in hillock means a little hill. The simple transi- 
tion from Chadock to Chattock in the spelling is orthographically correct. In the 
infancy of all languages, and particularly early English, d and t were as legitimately 
interchangeable as i and j are now. " The letters most closely allied in phonetics 
are the most frequently interchanged in grammar." — Professor Latham. In old 
English, the words father and mother were spelt "fader and moder." This gives 
Chatock. The occurrence of the double t in Chattock is also strictly correct. 
" The reduplication of the consonant after a vowel, as in spotted, merely denotes 
that the preceding vowel is short." — Professor Latham. The name is even now 
daily spelt Chaddock and Chattock, according to true orthoepy or otherwise. The 
charters and deeds relating to the Chattock property commence temp. Hen. II., 
and it appears from their contents that the original tenure was booked or char- 
tered Saxon free land (see Wilkins, ' Leges Anglo- Saxonicse '), and one of these 
documents (a list of properties formerly held by the family) records one of them 
at Little Sutton, bearing towards Lichfield, and called " Chadd[h]alle Felde," 
which had an ancient red-sandstone residence upon it in 1550. The old parish 
plans show that land was also held by the family at Sutton Coldfield, Penns, and 
Erdington, all in a direct line to Castle Bromwich. The family name of Chad 
must have been thoroughly impressed upon the diocese of Lichfield (formerly 
archiepiscopal and containing Chester and the whole of Mercia), for after only two 
hours' search in the registers there, besides Chaddock and Chattock, the following 
related names were found, viz. Chading (son of Chad), Chadd, Chadborn, Chat- 
born, and Chatfield. This is the only search as yet of public records ; but viewing 
the case as it at present stands, either in an etymological or genealogical light, the 
soundness of the conclusion that Noble arrived at is apparent. 

There is no such place as Chaddock, excepting Chaddock Hall, the seat of this 
branch of the family (see Baines's ' Lancashire and Ordnance Map '). Chatborn 
or Chadborn is doubtless from a female descent, corresponding with Chadock in the 
male ; Chatfield, from the foregoing " Chadd Feld" ; Chetwind, from a village in 
Salop (see Harwood's ' Erdswick,' pp. 55-6) ; Chadwick, from the village of that 
name (see Shaw's Staff.), and so late as 1480 the affix " de " to this name was not 
discontinued ; and Chetwood, from the name of a wood (see Kemble's ' Codex 
Diplomaticus iEvi Saxonici'). These places, together with Chat Moss, were all 
named from a Chad (see Baines, sup., as to latter). It is remarkable that the 
heralds assign arms to Chad, Chaddock, Chadwick, Chetwind, Chetwood, and other 
kindred names, corresponding with the affinity in their etymon. Dallaway, p. 362, 
says that marshalling by inescutcheon is sometimes on account of inheritance and 
special concession, as well as marriage.

county Fermanagh, the home of the Maguires and Mac Manuses, is taken from a letter inserted in 
the * Enniskillen Advertiser' of April 28, 1870, and signed "W. F. Wakeman" :— " We pass the 
barrack point, . . . and are soon abreast of that old stronghold of the Maguires, Princes of Ferma- 
nagh, the Castle of Enniskillen. This once important fortress has stood many a siege. In 1595 it 
had been taken from Maguire by the English, under Sir William Fitzwilliam, the Lord Justice. 
The Lord of Fermanagh, Aodh Maguire, aided by Aodh, the red O'Donnell, Donal Gorm Mac Don- 
nell, and MacLeod of Arran, at once besieged the English, who were destined to suffer a siege of 
the duration of two months and a half. This affair led to the celebrated battle of Bel-atha-na-M

Briosgaidh, or, of the place or ' mouth of the Ford of the Biscuits,' which occurred on a ford of 
the Arney, near Drummane bridge, at a distance of about six miles from Enniskillen. It appears 
tbat the Lord Justice, fearing the loss (through starvation) of the English Garrison of Enniskillen, 
collected an immense quantity of provisions, arms and stores, which he forwarded under the escort 
of an army to the relief of the Castle. Maguire, by his scouts, was aware of everything that was 
going on, and he wisely thought that the best thing he could accomplish was to intercept the convoy. 
This he did at Drummane, where, in the words of the annalists, ' a violent and fierce conflict, and a 
strenuous and determined battle, ensued between both parties ; but at length the Maguire and his 
forces defeated the other party by force of arms.' . . . Belview, the seat of John Cullum, Esq., may 
be seen a little further on, and before it the little island of InisJceen, or the ' Beautiful Island,' which, 
by the by, contains the ruins of a church, in ancient times the parish church of the district in which 
Enniskillen stands. . . . After rounding rinns, or projecting headlands, without number, we pass by 
the rich island of Cleenish, anciently Claen-inis, or the ' sloping Island,' where in the sixth century, 
saint Sinncll founded a monastery, which was destined in later times to become very famous, and some 
remains of which were to be seen late in the last century. Alas for ecclesiologists ! its walls were 
removed as building materials for the fort " (a portion of the monument erected near the town of 
Enniskillen in honour of General the Honourable Sir Galbraith-Lowry Cole, G.C.B.) " on Cole's Hill ! 
The wind freshens as we glide past Inismore Hall, and soon after passing Carry Bridge, and rounding 
a point, we catcli a sight of Bellisle, once the seat of Lord Eoss, but at present the charming resi- 
dence of J. G. V. Porter, Esq. Here it was that in the fourteenth century Cathal Maguiro " (Cathal 
Mac Manus Maguire, canon of Armagh and dean of Clogher, the original compiler of the Annals of 
Ulster, who died in 1498), " a learned antiquary, compiled the famous annals of Ulster. The Island 
was formerly styled Bally Mac Manus, from the name of the clan by which it was occupied."

Sir Isaac Newton, of St. James's parish in the county of Middlesex Knight, and Master and 
Worker of Her Majesty's Mint, voluntarily maketh Oath that this Deponent hath a deed of feoff- 
ment of John Newton, who was (as he hath reason to believe) his great grandfather's father dated 
the 19 th day of December, in the fourth yeare of Queene Elizabeth in the yeare 1562, wherein by the 
name of John Newton of Westby in the County of Lincoln he settled his Estate in Wilstrope, in 
the parish of Colsterworth in the said County, on his five sons, Richard, George, Robert, Symon 
and William Newton, and their heirs successively ; Which said John Newton, by agreement of time, 
and being called of Westby, he verily believes to have been the same person with one John Newton, 
whom he finds by an attested extract of the register of Basingthorp cum Westby aforesaid, to have 
been buried in that Church on the 22 nd day of December, Anno Dom. 1563, being the yeare after 
the said feoffment, and likewise to have been the same person mentioned in a Visitation of Lincolnshire 
made in or about the year 1634, now remaining in the Herald's Colledge in London, there called John 
Newton first son of John Newton of Westby aforesaid, and Brother of Thomas Newton, Richard 
Newton, and William Newton, of Gunnerby, great grandfather of Sir John Newton, of Hather in the 
said County, Baronet ; he having by tradition from his kindred ever since he can remember, reckoned 
himselfe next of kin (among the Newtons) to Sir John Newton's family, and having also, about fifty- 
four or fifty-five years ago, heard his grandmother Ascough (with whom he lived at Wylstrope afore- 

# The original certificates are now in the possession of W. H. G. Bagshawe, of Ford Hall. 



said alias Woolstrope, till he was about eleven years old, and who at that time frequently conversed 
with the Deponent's great Uncle Eichard Newton) say, that he, this Deponent, was or had been next 
heir att law to M r Newton, of Hather, until the birth of M r Newton's children, who were then two 
or three infants, and that he and they were cousins two or three times removed, or words to that 
purpose, and he, this Deponent, believing that his said Grandmother, upon the marriage of her 
daughter with his father, might learn the kindred, and that his gi'andfather Newton, to promote 
the marriage, might be forward to speak of itt, representing himself cousin once removed, and 
next heir to said M r Newton, att that time six or seven years under age, afterwards father to Sir 
John Newton. And further this Deponent saith, that Richard Newton first above mentioned is 
great grandfather and first son of the second John Newton, enjoyed the said estate at Woolstrope, 
according to the said Settlement, as appears by a deed in this Deponent's possession, of settlement of 
the said estate on this Deponent's father and mother, dated the 30 th day of December, in the 15 th 
yeare of King Charles the First, 1639, made by Robert Newton, the eldest son of the said Richard, 
and this, Deponent's grandfather, wherein are these words (and which formerly descended and came 
unto the said Robert Newton after the death of Richard Newton, father to the said Robert Newton), 
and this Deponent saith, that he finds by an attested copy of the register of Colsterworth cum 
Woolstrope aforesaid, that one Richard Newton was buried there the 30 th day of April 1588 whom 
he believes to be the same Richard, his grandfather's father. And the said Robert Newton he finds 
to have been buried at Colsterworth aforesaid by the said extract, on the 20 th day of September 
1641 leaving issue three sons, first, Isaac Newton, mentioned in the said deed of settlement of the 
15 th of King Charles the First, and whom he finds by Colsterworth register to have been baptized 
the 21 st of December 1606 ; secondly, Robert Newton, baptized likewise the 27 th of September, 
1607, who lived afterwards at Counthorp in the same county, and whose issue are still living : and 
thirdly, Richard Newton baptized likewise there the 9 th of April 1609, who lived at Colsterworth, 
and left issue still remaining there. And further this Deponent saith, that the said Isaac, this De- 
ponent's father married Hannah daughter of James Ascough of Market Overton in the County of 
Rutland, Gentleman, and that he was buried at Colsterworth aforesaid, on the 6 th day of October, 
1642, seized of the said estate of Woolstrope, which is descended to, and now is enjoyed by, this 
Deponent his only child, who was born the 25 th of December, and baptized the 1 st day of January 
in the said yeare 1642. This deponent's mother, Hannah Ascough remarried to Barnabas Smith, 
Rector of North Witham in Lincolnshire, by whom she had issue Mary, Benjamin, and Hannah, 
each of which have issue remaining. 

In witness whereof this Deponent hath hereunto put his hand and seale, this two and twentieth 
day of November, Anno Dom. 1705.

Sir John Newton, of Thorpe in the parish of Hather> in the county of Lincoln, Baronet, aged 
about fifty-three years, certifieth that his deponent hath heard his father Sir John Newton Baronet 
aged about seventy and three years at the time of his death, speak of Isaac Newton Master of Arts 
and Fellow of Trinity Colledge in Cambridge now Sir Isaac Newton Knight, Master and Worker of 
her Ma tics Mint in the Tower of London and of St. James's Parish in the County of Middlesex, 
as of his Relation and Kinsman. And this deponent saith, that upon his view of a coppy of an entry 
of the family of Newton, said to be entered in a visitation of the said county of Lincoln, made 
in or about the year 1634, and said to be now remaining in the Herald's Colledge in London, he 
finds one John Newton of Wcstby in the said County, mentioned to have had four sons, viz. John 
Newton, Thomas Newton, Richard Newton, and one William Newton of Gunncrby in the said 
County, which said William Newton was his great Grandfather, aiid believes the said Sir Isaac 
Newton to be descended from the said John Newton, son to John Newton of Westby, the Common 
Ancestor, and first mentioned in that entry, but knoweth not in what particular manner, but that 
the said Sir Isaac hath alwaies been reckoned by him of the same name and blood with his family. 

In witness whereof the said Sir John Newton hath hereunto set his hand and seal this 21 st day 
of November, in the year 1705. — 



Skynwer, on Skinner, op Bolingbroke, and Thornton College, Lincoln- 
shire. — I wish, to take an opportunity of correcting the two first descents in this 
pedigree as printed in 4 Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' Monthly Series, 
October, 1870 (antea, p. 81). Since that communication was made I have by 
chance discovered, at Lincoln, the will of John Skynner* of that city, merchant, 
dated 30th December, 1545 (date of probate torn off), who died, as appears from 
his Inq. p. m., on the 11th of October, 1545. From these documents it is now 
plainly seen that he — and not John Skynner, the Receiver of the Honor of Boling- 
broke and grantee of the arms in 1557 — was the father of Sir Vincent and Henry 
Skynner. It furthermore appears that the grandfather of the two latter was not 
Robert Skynner, of Exeter, but a Robert Skynner, also of Lincoln, whose will is 
printed at length in ' Notes and Queries,' 1st ser. x. 377. These circumstances 
explain the discrepancy alluded to in my note (p, 81) as to the arms borne by the 
Thornton College family, to whom those forming the subject of the grant by Hervy 
do not seem to belong. The pedigree should commence thus : —

Lieut.- General James Stewart, who — according to the ' Gentleman's Magazine,' 
1798, part i. p. 446 — died at "Williamstown, near Dublin, on the 1st of May in that 
year ? 

Some genealogical information respecting Dr. Claudius Gilbert, who was Vice- 
Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, 1716-35, and a very liberal contributor to its 
noble library, is desired. Having been appointed to the rectory of Ardstraw, in 
the diocese of Derry, in July, 1735, he died in October, 1742 ; and his executors 
were the Rev. Dr. Hodson, of Omagh, Richard "Warburton, Esq., of Donnycarney, 
near Dublin, and Dr. Thomas Kingsbury, of Anglesea Street, in that city. Eor 
particulars of his benefactions, see ' The Dublin University Calendar,' 1871, p. 

In what church or where was the Rev. Dr. Michael "Ward married to Mary 
Margetson, and where may an entry of the marriage be found ? It is supposed 
to have been solemnized in Dublin, or the neighbourhood, 1674-8. 

Captain Roger Harvie. Frequent and honourable mention of this officer is 
made in ' Pacata Hibernia, or a History of the "Wars in Ireland during the Reign 
of Queen Elizabeth.' His death is minutely described in vol. ii. p. 645 (Dublin, 
1810). To what family did he belong, and are any members of it still resident in 
Ireland, where there are many of the name ? B. H. B, 

Smith (p. 48). — Newton Smith, nephew of Sir Isaac Newton, was under age 
in 1712. He afterwards married Catherine, the daughter of "William "Wimberley, 
son of "William Wimberley (long residents at Bitchfield), postmaster of the district 
between Stamford and Grantham, who resided at Witham. On July 20, 1716, 
was baptized at "Witham, Catherine, the daughter of Newton Smith and Mrs. 
Catherine ; on April 7, 1718, Isaac Newton Smith, son of the same ; and on Eeb. 
25, 1719, Sarah, daughter of the same. These baptisms are from the register of 
South Witham. They afterwards lived at Barrowby, near Grantham, and to the 
father, Sir Isaac Newton was guardian. The signature of Benjamin Smith, with 
the date 1723, is on the cover of the Witham parish register, which commences in 
1686. In the King's Silver Office is the record of a fine, Trinity Term, 1761; 
William Manners, plaintiff, and Benj. Smith, clerk, and Benj. Brown and Sarah, 
deforciants, of messuages, cottages, and lands in South Witham. Mrs. Sarah 
Brown, widow of Mr. Benj. Brown, of Owston, Leicestershire, and daughter of 
Newton Smith alluded to above, and sister of Isaac Newton Smith, had a fine 
original picture of Sir Isaac Newton, by Kneller, which she sold to the Duke 
of Rutland about the year 1786. A pedigree of the Newton family is given in 
Turner's ' History of Grantham.' Justin Simpson. 




Erost. — "William Erost emigrated to New England prior to 1655, in which 
year he removed from Boston and united in the settlement of Cromwell Bay, on 
Long Island. In 1G67 he removed to Matinecock, in Oyster Bay, L. I., where 
he died about 1698 or 1699, leaving two sons, "William and Wright Erost. By 
his will, made March 28, 1698, he directs that in the event of the death of both 
these sons without issue, his estate shall " return to any of the Erosts that de- 
scended from G-eorgc Erost, born in Bensteed, two miles from Earnham, in 
Hampshire, in Old England — to the first heirs or heiresses so descending." Any 
information from parish registers or other sources which throw light on the genea- 
logy of George Erost, presumed to be the father of William above named, would be 
very acceptable. I. J. L. 

Smith. — Richard Smith, of the parish of Bramham, West Riding of Yorkshire 
baptized 10th May, 1593, buried 19th November, 1647, had an only son, Richard 
baptized 15 October, 1626, married to Ann Yeates, by Paul Beale, Alderman of 
York, 25 Eebruary, 1653, died at Bramham 1688. A MS. of his grandson says of 
the second R. S., "he was educated for the Gowne, but y e troubles in EDgland at 
that time prevented his Proceeding." He became one of the Proprietors of West 
New Jersey, in America, whither his sons went, and where his descendants con- 
tinued for a long time to fill important public offices, — one of them (Richard 
Smith) representing the province in the Continental Congress in 1776. Could the 
pedigree of R. S., No. 1, be traced ? A seal used by his great-great-grandson 
Samuel Smith, author of a valuable History of the Colony of New Jersey, pub- 
lished in 1765, bears these arms, — Argent a lion rampant gules, crowned, sceptred 
and orbed or. Thos. Stewardson, Jx\ 

Qermantotvn, Philadelphia. 

Chaddock (pp. 134, 155). — It would seem probable that the name Chad is' 
derived from the 0. G. cat (Jiat) =hellum, militia, prselium (0. Sax. guth, Eranc. 
gund, Ice. gudur, W. and Corn, cad, Gael, and Ir. catli, Basq. cudu, Sansk. yudh, 
yodli. Conf. also the ancient name Catvalda and the inverse Vellocatus=belli- 
potens ; and Csedmon, miles, bellator, vir belli) ; and Chatto and Catto are doubt- 
less O. Gr. forms of the same name ; although Catto may also be from Catto, co. 
York. Chaddock, Chattock, and Haddock, may be diminutives of Chad [Conf. 
the Italian diminutives in uccio, uccia ; as casuccia\ . The names Chadborn, Chat- 
born, and Chat Moss do not appear to be connected with the other mentioned 
names. The two former are doubtless derived from a river name, Chad, Chat, or 
Ket, i. q. Gade, a river, co. Herts; Gote, a river of Sweden; from a Su-Gothic 
word. The name Catomore may not always be from Catumerus=bello clams. 
Catmore and Catmur may be from Catmere in Berks. As a rule, heraldry is of 
little value in deciphering proper names. The arms of the Celtic name Liverpool 
are " argent a liver (bird) azure "; on the town-seal of Hartlepool a stag is repre- 
sented in a pool ; whilst a Robins family (whose name is clearly derived from 
Robert) has for crest " Three Robins." R. S. Charnock. 

8, Grays Inn Square. 

P.S. Since writing the above, I have been in communication with Mr. Chattock, 
of Castle Broinwich, who thinks the name Cerdic contains all the elements of the 
name Chadock ; thus — Cerdic, Cher die, Char doc, Chadoc, Chattock. But whence 
the name Cerdic ? I can suggest no other etymology than from lier-teoclic, which 
will translate both " war leader" and "renowned leader." Conf. the German 




The following extracts from the registers of Oswestry and Nannerch relate to 
the family of Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. William Williams, Esq., with 
whom the Oswestry extracts begin in the year 1700, succeeded his father, the 
Eight Honourable Sir Wm. Williams, Bart., in his title and large estates. The 
latter had been Speaker of the House of Commons in 1679-80. Edward, the 
eldest son of William Williams, Esq., as will be seen, died a child. Watkin, the 
second son, succeeded — under the will of his kinsman, Sir John Wynn, Bart. — 
to the extensive estates of Wynnstay, and assumed the additional surname of 
Wynn. Upon the death of his father, Sir William Williams, Bart., he became 
the first Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. Eobert, the second son of Sir Wil- 
liam, married Merryel Williames, represented in Parliament the county of Mont- 
gomery, and died without issue. Richard, another son, whose name appears in the 
Oswestry Begister, was M.P. for the Flintshire Boroughs, and died in 1759. His 
name, and those of his wives and some of his children, will be found in the Nan- 
nerch Begister and in the inscriptions upon coffin-plates in the vaults at Nannerch.

Ellis Eamilt. — I am preparing a second Supplement to my ' Notices of the 
Ellises,' and should be obliged by the following information : — 

Ancestry and descendants of Sir John Ellys, sometime owner of the manor of 
Totehill, co. Cambridge. 

Parentage of the Eev. John Ellis, B.D., the first known ancestor of Baron 
Mendip, afterwards Viscount Clifden. He is described in his memorial in Wad- 
desdon Church, co. Bucks, as " Eboracensis." He was Eector there, 1661, and 
was Eellow of Catharine Hall, Cambridge. He died 1681, ret. 75, and married 
Susannah Welbore. 

Ancestry and descendants of Sir William Ellis, appointed, 1731, Ensign in 
Brigadier Tyrrel's Eegiment. 

Ancestry and descendants of the following — Thomas Ellis, Esq., ob. 1735, 
ret. 92, G-room of the Chamber to James II. Hugh Ellis, Esq., ob. 1749, ret. 98, 
formerly Secretary to the Duke of Marlborough. Eichard Ellis, Usher of the 
Court of Wards and Liveries, 1617. Eight Honourable Sir Henry Ellis, &.C.B., 
formerly Ambassador to the Court of Persia, ob. 1855. Descendants of Eev. 
Thomas Ellis, Minor Canon of Ely, who died 1764, and of his relative, Eev. Seth 
Ellis, Incumbent of Brampton, co. Derby. 

And I should be glad to know by what matches the following coats were 
brought in and quartered, viz. Quarterly of four, 1, a chevron between three 
cinqfoils (? Woodhouse of Suffolk) ; 2 and 3, three lions passant ; 4, on a cross 
sable five crescents (Ellis), on an escutcheon of pretence, a lion passant. 
Crest, a lion passant. Motto, Nemo me impune lacessit. They occur on a seal 
formerly in the possession of Thomas Ellis, who died 1802. He was descended of 
the Ellises of Orford, in Suffolk, who bore a lion passant. This family is supposed 
to be an offset of Ellis of Chesterfield, a branch of those of Kiddall, who bore 
or on a cross sable jive crescents argent. The lion passant was granted 1587, to 
Ellis of Alrey, co. Flint, and was probably erroneously assumed by Ellis of Orford.

Henry Wright. — Who was Henry Wright ? He was created, in 1660, a 
Baronet, as Sir Henry Wright, of Dagenham, Essex. Was he connected with the 
Wrights of Kclvedon, Essex, or the Wrights of Kilverstone, Norfolk ? What 
arms did he bear ? He married Anne, daughter of John, first Lord Crewe of 
Stene. Was there any issue of that marriage ? It is probable that he did not 
long survive his marriage, as his widow married Edmund Pye (ancestor of the Pye's 
of Farringdon), and had several children by her second husband. Any information 
respecting this Sir Henry Wright will greatly oblige C. W. H.

Tuke (p. 35). — In the number of your Journal for June, 1870, " C. G." asks, 
who now represents the family of Sir Samuel Tuke? In the Heralds' College 
there is a pedigree, sworn to by Sir John Evelyn, on the 8th of April, 1742, showing 
that at that date only one of Sir Samuel's descendants was living, namely, his 
second daughter, Theresa, the widow of Charles Trender, Esq., of Bourton-on-the- 
Waters, co. Gloucester (who died 1718), she being then resident at Ligny, in the 
Duchy of Bar. Sir Samuel ob. January 28, 1670-1, his will being proved in Lon- 
don, by Mary, his relict, in 1674. He mentions, but does not name his children, 
and leaves his wife sole executrix. She died at Lisbon, 1705. 

The above-mentioned pedigree gives three children, — Charles, at whose death, 
at the battle of the Boyne, the title became extinct ; Mary, the eldest daughter, 
who died unmarried, 1740, and was buried at Cambray ; and the above-named 

This pedigree traces the family from Sir Brian Tuke, through Thomas Tuke, of 
Layer Marney (stated in Harl. MS. 1541 pedigree to be of Aldersgate Street, and 
having a son Thomas, born 1612), who by his second wife, Judith, daughter of Edward 
North, of Walkeringham, co. Notts, had Samuel, the first Baronet, who is said to 
have had a son Samuel, the second Baronet. This agrees with Courthorpe ; but 
Samuel Tuke was only knighted March 3rd, 1663, and created baronet March 31, 
1664, and in the will above referred to he is styled " knight and baronet." Fur- 
ther, in 1664, Evelyn, who only appears to refer to one Sir Samuel Tuke, mentions 
his marriage ; in 1666, the death of his wife ; and again, in 1668, his [second] 
marriage. Quere. Does not this show that Courthorpe and this pedigree are incor- 
rect m making two baronets of this name ? W. M. Tuke.

Proued in the Archdeanery Court of Barnstyle on the 29 th day of November 

Eaveistscroft (p. 79). — The enclosed extract from a Chester paper of July 
1849, will give " Querans " the information he seeks : — 

" Middlewich. — An Old English Signet Eing. — G-reek and Eoman Eings. — 
Some labourers, while removing a hedge at Eavenscroft, near Middlewich, in the 
spring of 1842, found an antique signet ring of fine gold (technically of 24 carats 
fineness, the modern quality being 18 carats), on the face of which was engraven 
an heraldic shield, bearing arms which are or were borne by the two families of 
Eavenscroft and Vaudrey. The ring, which weighs 14 dwt. 10 grains, is now in 
the possession of Mr. James Beardoe, of this town, and an impression of it having 
been forwarded to Dr. Ormerod, the able historian of Cheshire, he writes as follows 
respecting it : — ' I thank you for the impression of the ring. The arms, ' Argent 
a chevron sable between three ravens' heads erased of the second,' are indisputably 
those of Eavenscroft of Eavenscroft, whose heiress, Margery, brought that estate 
to Eoger de Croxton in the time of Edward III. If the seal had been of the 
period of a Eavenscroft of Eavenscroft, I conjecture that it would have been cir- 
cumscribed ' S. : Warini de Eavenscroft,' or as the case might be. Erom its aspect, 
I do not think that it is earlier than the beginning of Elizabeth's reign or later 
than the Eevolution. In this opinion, I think it probable that it was the seal of 
some Croxton of Eavenscroft, who fancied using the arms of his female ancestors ; 
or it might be the seal of some collateral descendant of the old line, Eavenscroft 
of Bretton for instance, who might lose it when visiting his kinsman. The first 
idea seems to me the most probable. Within the period that I have mentioned, 
Eavenscroft produced one well-known proprietor, Thomas Croxton, Colonel of one 
of the Cheshire regiments raised to oppose Duke Hamilton in 1648, one of the 
members of the Court Martial which condemned the Earl of Derby in 1651, and 
the officer who closed the gates of Chester Castle against Sir Greorge Booth in 
1659. It may have been his ring.' " 

The Eavenscroft and Croxton estates adjoin. Ciciley Croxton, a spinster, was 
the last of the Croxton owners of Eavenscroft, and for many years, in my recol- 
lection, her ghost was said to haunt the old mansion. 

In the reign of Elizabeth, John Croxton de Eavenscroft, gent., held certain 
lands and tenements, with the appurtenances, in Kinderton, of Thomas Venables, 




lord of that manor, by service (inter alia) to find for the said Thomas Venables 
and his heirs one hangman, to hang murderers and felons within the manor when 
required. The Kinderton Court Rolls (6 Sept., 34 Eliz.) contain a presentment 
by the jury that the said John Croxton rendered this service by hiring one John 
Lingard, for the sum of five shillings, to hang Hugh Stringer, for the murder of 
Ann Cranage and her daughter Ciciley Cranage. B. Ll. Vawdrey. 

Barbor Family (Quarterly Series, Vol. I., p. 58). — From a recent examina- 
tion of the parish register of North Luffenham, Rutland, I am enabled to forward 
the following extracts relative to that family ; also some additional ones respecting 
other families who were by marriage connected with them : — 

1655. Catherine Weaver, wife of John "Weaver, bur. Dec. 24, 

1656. Katherine, dau. of M r John Weaver, bapt. May 18. 

1658. Hester, dau. of John Weaver, bapt. Sept. . . .

1666. Doctor Samuel Winter, bur. Dec. 26. 1 

1670. M 1 ' Christ. Broughton & M rs Frances Markham, mar. Aug. II. 2 
1672. Rebecca, dau. of Richard Markham, esq., bapt, May 9. 8 

1682. M r Henry Markham & M rs Esther Weaver, mar. Nov. 7. 

1683. John son of M r Grabriel Barber, bur. in wollen only April 11. 

1687. M rs Bridgett Barber, bur. in linnen Sept. 7. 

1688. John Weaver, esq,, bur. in wollen only March 28. 4 

1703. Elizabeth wife of M r Grabriel Barbour, bur. in wollen April 21. 

1 This individual was Rector of Cottingham, co. York, who went to Ireland, 
in 1650, as Chaplain to the Commissioners for the settlement of that country, and 
soon afterwards was constituted Provost of Trinity College, Dublin. On the 
south wall of the chancel of this church (Luffenham) is a marble table, having on 
it these arms, — Chequy sable and or, a fess argent, impaling or, on a fess argent, 
two garbs of the first ; and this inscription, — " Samuel Winter, D 1 ' of Divinity, 
eminent for piety & learning, late Prouost of Trinity College near Dubline. lie 
deceased the 24th of December in the yeare 1666 & in y e 63 yeare of his age. He 
married Elizabeth y e daughter of Christ. Weaver, esq., who out of her entire 
affection for him caused this to be set up in memorial of him." 

2 Mr. Christopher Broughton was of Longden, Stafford, and Mrs. B. was the 
third daughter of Robt. Markham, the first Baronet, of Sedgebrooke, Notts. 

3 On the south wall of the chancel of this church is a marble tablet bearing 
this inscription, — " Under the stone below lyeth interred the corps of Colonell 
Henry Markham, who departed this life at Ketton in this county the 15th day of 
January 1672 in the foure and fifty year of his age, whose widow (Hester, y e 
daughter of Christ. Weaver, esq.) out of her deare affection to his memoriall hath 
caused this monument to be erected 1673." On the tablet are these arms, — 
1, (azure) on a chief (or), a demi-lion rampant issuant (gules) ; 2, chequy, over all 
a bend ; 3, on a fess two lions' heads, crowned ; 4, on a bend cottised three bears' ? 
heads couped ; 5, a cross saltire ; 6, a chevron between three bucks' heads ; 7, a 
lion rampant; 8 as 3. Crest, a lion of St. Mark, sejant guardant, winged (or), 
circled round the head (argent) supporting a lyre of the first, Markham. The 
stone in the chancel was in existence in 1862, but, owing to the recent restoration 
effected in the chancel, it was removed. It bore this inscription, — " Here lyeth 
Col. Henry Markham, who was very instru'tal in y e happy restauration of K. 
Charles y c 2 d , & was one of y e 48 gentlemen of y e Privy Chamber to y e said King 
of ever blessed memory." 

4 Mr. John Weaver was for several years representative for the Borough of 
Stamford in Parliament, and also a benefactor to its charities. I am disposed to 
think he was the eldest son of Christopher Weaver. Justin Simpson.

f Mrs. Lockey's will appears to have more than common interest, and an abstract is therefore 
given, for the most part in her own words, but with the spelling modernized. The disposition of 
her daughters, and the provision made for their maintenance and education, throws a curious light 
on the manners and customs of the period. 

In the name of God Amen, I Anne Lockey of Eidge, Co. Hertford, Widow, in reasonable good 
health, " but not knowing how soon or sudainly it maie please the lord to call me hence." Soul to 
God ; my body, if I die at Ridge, to be buried near my most dearly loving and beloved husband and 
four children in Ridge church ; and 40/ to be given to the poor of Ridge. If I die elsewhere, 20/ 
to be given to the poor there, and 20/ where I shall be buried. I give £10 towards procuring an 
able and conscionable minister to preach a sermon in the afternoon of the Saboth days at Ridge. 
To my dearly beloved sisters M rs Wilmer, and M rs Woodrof, for a remembrance of my love — to my 
sister Wilmer my furred cloak and my sute petticoat ; and to my sister Woodrof my sute of cut 
silk grogram, my petticoat with two gold and silk laces, my best ruffe and ruffes and apron. And 
also something which was mine, to my well beloved nephews M r Samuel Wilmer and M r John Vaux 
and their wives, and also to my nephew M r John Wilmer. And also to my dear friend M rs Eliza- 
beth Southcote ; and if she pleases to bring up my daughter Martha, I should think her well placed, 
but not to charge her. To each of my servants 10/ besides their wages. To my son John Lockey 
" as followeth, as a token of my dear loue and affection for him, and assuredly hopeing he will approue 
himselfe after my departure, as euer heretofore he hath, a louing and dutifull Sonne in his christian 
and faithfull loue and care for his Sisters, both for their educacon, and for their preferment to the 
uttermost of his power, takeing a ffatherly care over them in all things wch ptain to their good for 
soul and body ; I saie I give him all his ffathers and my books of la we, or other learning, saueing and 
my will is he give each of his Sisters a bible, a testament and a psalm book, and such of my divinity 
books in english as are fittest for their vse ; and some of my french bookes, if any of them have 
skill therein. I giue to him my ffather his grandfather, and Vncle Stubbs their pictures, wishing 
thay may allwaies mind him of their vertues for ymitacon of their worthy and religious courses." I 
give him also that piece of ground called Sextons grove, which I rook up in his name at Tittenhanger 
Court : also my wedding ring and my best furniture of my curtays and vallance embroidered, 
feather bed, blankets, bolster and pillows at the Temple, and one of my best pair of sheets and pil- 
loberes, and tablecloth and napkins and towels ; also the money I disbursed for his Chamber and 
for his buildings, and the £38 I discharged. To my daughter Anne Lockey my necklace of gold 
and pearl which hath her and my name in greek letters, my gold tablet enamelled, and the piece of 
4 ducats ; and for a remembrance of her good grandmother, my dear mother, her picture to mind 
her of her vertues ; also the purled silver bowl, also the nutt tipped with silver, and the gilt bowl 
which was hers, also her best arras coverlet, the long pillows wi'ought with Crostick, and a tablecloth 
and napkins of that linen which hath my mothers mark ; also my damask petticoat, and also half 
of my apparel : the rest of my apparel most of it to my daughter Mary, at the discretion of their 
aunts : and my confidence is that my two elder daughters will shew themselves loving and mother- 
like to their younger sisters. I give to my daughter Mary as a remembrance of her careful and 
loving attendance on me, my pearl border and necklace of pearls and garnets, and my bracelet of 
pomander and pearls, and two 15/ pieces. I give my daughter Martha as a remembrance of her 
loving affection to me, my ring with rubies and a diamond, and my seed pearl buttons with the 
pearls which should be at the tops of them, also one of the best of my pearl and coral bracelets and 
two Ducats, and the half ducat. I give my daughter Elizabeth my 14 little gold buttons and the 
little jewel with the pearl which belongs to it, and the other pearl and coral bracelet, and the pistolet 
and Scotch piece. The rest of my jewels unbequeathed I give betwixt them two, and their elder 
sisters, to keep them until they come to the age of 15 years ; and if any of them be lost they to 
make them good, also all my wearing linen, and such like things, to be divided amongst them at the 
discretion of their aunts and my executors, and the angel gold to be divided amongst them for to 
mind them of their duty to their father and me. My will is that my daughter Ann, if her aunts 
think so fit, be put out for half a year or a year, and my daughter Mary two years, to learn what 
they are wanting in ; and £14 a year to be allowed to each of them for their education and main- 
tenance, and afterwards to be put to some honest service, and £5 a year to be allowed for their better 
maintenance ; their placing to be at the discretion of my loving sisters their aunts : and for my two 
younger daughters my will is that £8 a year be allowed them till they come to the age of 12 years, 
and then £12 a piece to put them to school for two years, and after £14 a piece for their better 
education and maintenance, and then to be disposed to some honest service, at the discretion of their 
aunts, and of my executors if they be deceased, and then £5 a year be allowed for their better 
maintenance. And if any of my daughters live unmarried till they be of the age of 23 years, then 
to have 40 marks allowed yearly until they are 30 years, then to have £32 each yearly for their 
maintenance till they marry or die ; with benefit of survivorship. "But if any of them, wch the 
lord for christs sake I trust will keepe far from them, should not carry themselves vertuously, or 
should refuse to bee guided in their courses or matches by their loueing Aunts," or by my executors, 
they that are found faulty shall have but three score pounds for their portion, the rest of their por- 
tion to be divided amongst my children which are virtuous. My son to have the land I have pur- 
chased in his name in Essex, if he will pay £540 towards his sisters portions within two years after 



my death, allowing them in the meantime £7 in the hundred, but if he refuse, the same to the best 
use of my (our daughters ; and they to have the residue of my goods unbequeathed. My funeral to 
be in a seemly manner : my daughters portions to be payable at 18 years if God directs of a good 
match for them. I appoint my son John Lockey sole executor, and I give him my treble soverayne, 
which was the last bequest of his grandmother to me. If he should not live to perform my will, I 
appoint my nephew M r John Wilmer my executor, and give him as a remembrance of my love my 
purse wrought with gold and silk, and two fine shirts and a gold ring. My brother Woodrof to be 
overseer. In witness whereof I write all this with mine owne hand, if I live not to alter it, for my 
last will and testament, this 22 nd January 1626. Anne Lockey

X As the will is short, an abstract may be given : — In the name of God, amen. I John Lockey 
of Barking in the county of Essex, Esq. : sick in body : soul to God ; body to the earth. To my 
little daughter Abigail, all my messuages &c. in the town and county of Nottingham, to her and her 
heirs for ever, with remainder in case of her death unmarried, to my son John Lockey. To said 
Abigail £200, to be paid when she is 16. To Elizabeth Gisling, widow, my loving sister, £200, she 
releasing to my wife Abigail Lockey all right or interest she may have to or in my real or personal 
estate, or to any legacies given her by Ann Lockey her mother. Residue of estate to Abigail, my 
loving wife, she to be executrix : dated March 25 1651 : signed John Lockey, in presence of Wil- 
liam Ames — John Gartrand, and Edward Keighly : proved April 3 rd following, by Abigail Lockey 
the widow : registered Grey 70. 

Mr. Lockey was probably buried at Barking ; the Register was not kept regularly at the time of 
his death, and there is no entry of hi3 burial. 

§ Nothing further has been ascertained of William Lockey's children, nor does it seem to be 
known whether he has any descendants. The Lockey wills recorded after 1699 would probably 
furnish valuable information, but they are not open to literary inquiry.

daughter of John, Lord Crewe, and sister of Nathaniel, Lord Crewe, Bishop of 
Durham, by whom he had Henry, only son and heir, and Anne, only daughter. 
He was created a baronet in June, 1660 ; and died February 5, 1664, aged 27 ; and 
was buried in the family vault at South Weald. Anne, his widow, survived until

midshipman on board the Bienfaisant, of 64 guns, commanded by the late Adm. M'Bride ; under 
the auspices of which gallant officer he completed the first six years of active duty. Being lent for 
awhile to the Arethusa frigate, he bore a part in the well-fought action between that ship and La

Belle Poule, Jan. 17, 1778 ; and on his return to the Bienfaisant, was in the action between Keppel 
and d'Orvilliers off Ushant. He was also present at the capture of the Caraccas convoy, the 
defeat of Don Juan de Langara, and the relief of Gibraltar by the fleet under Sir G. B. Rodney. 
In the following August, he captured off Kinsale the Comte d'Artois, a large privateer of 44 guns, 
after a smart action in which the enemy had 21 men killed and 35 wounded, and the Bienfaisant 
3 killed and 20 wounded. It was a remarkable circumstance that in the following month, the 
Bienfaisant captured another privateer called the Comtesse d'Artois. At the close of 1780, Mr. 
Sotheron removed with his gallant Commander into the Artois frigate, which was considered to be 
the finest vessel of her class in the world. This ship formed part of the force employed to watch 
the motions of the Dutch squadron, which was then ready for sea in the Texel ; and our young 
officer was consequently present in Aug. 1781, at the engagement off the Dogger Bank between Sir 
Hyde Parker and Adm. Zoutmann. On the 3d Dec. in the same year, the Artois captured the 
Hercules and Mars, Dutch privateers, mounting 24 nine-pounders and 10 cohorns each ; and she 
also formed part of Adm. Barrington's fleet, which intercepted a French convoy bound to the East 
Indies, on which occasion the Pegase of 74 guns, L'Actionnaire a 2-decker armed en flute, and ten 
sail of transports, fell into the hands of the British. During the remainder of the war Mr. Sotheron 
served in the Artois off the Irish coast. He afterwards proceeded to Newfoundland, where he was 
promoted to the rank of Lieutenant by Adm. Campbell, in 1783, and served in that capacity on 
board the Danae and iEolus frigate during the ensuing three years. We subsequently find him in 
the Kingfisher sloop, from which vessel he removed into the Trusty 50, bearing the broad pendant 
of Commodore Cosby on the Mediterranean station. Mr. Sotheron's next appointment was about 
1792, to be first Lieutenant of the Romney, another 50-gun ship, carrying the flag of Rear- Adm. 
Goodall in the Mediterranean : and in the course of the same year, he obtained the command of 
the Fury of 14 guns, employed in affording protection to the trade between England and Portugal. 
He subsequently accompanied the expedition under his old patron Rear- Adm. M'Bride and the Earl 
of Moira, sent to assist the French royalists in Normandy and Brittany, and assisted at the capture of 
La Vipere, a national corvette mounting 18 guns. Capt. Sotheron was advanced to Post rank 
Dec. 11, 1793 ; and in the following year, we find him commanding the Monarch, a 74-gun ship 
bearing the broad pendent of Sir James Wallace, with whom he removed into his old ship the 
Romney, on that officer being appointed Commander-in-Chief at Newfoundland. Towards the 
latter end of 1796, a French Squadron, under the orders of M. de Richery, invested that settle- 
ment, and destroyed property to a considerable amount. The enemy's armament consisted of seven 
sail of the line and three frigates, on board of which were embarked 2000 troops. Sir James Wal- 
lace, however, by his judicious arrangements, aided by the bravery and vigilance of Capt. Sotheron, 
and the other officers of his small squadron (consisting of the Romney, 2 frigates, and 2 sloops), 
completely baffled the designs of the enemy, who, after a fruitless attempt to obtain possession 
of the colony, returned to Europe. Capt. Sotheron's next appointment was to the Latona frigate 
on the Newfoundland station, where he continued during the two following years. Subsequently 
to his return to England, he was actively employed in the North Sea, and occasionally commanded 
a light squadron off the coast of Holland. In the autumn of 1799, the Latona formed part of the 
expedition sent against the Helder ; and after the surrender of that fortress, went with Vice- Adm. 
Mitchell to attack the Batavian ships of war lying at anchor in the Vlieter channel, but which sur- 
rendered without making any resistance, in consequence of the spirit of disaffection manifested by 
their crews. For his services on this occasion, Capt. Sotheron, in common with the other officers 
of the fleet, received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament. Capt. Sotheron continued in the 
North Sea during the remainder of the war, and was fortunate enough to capture several of the 
enemy's armed vessels. In the spring of 1802 he was sent abroad with dispatches, and some time 
after the renewal of hostilities obtained the command of the Excellent, 74, attached to the Mediter- 
ranean fleet under the orders of Lord Nelson, by whom he was entrusted with the defence of the 
Bay of Naples, on which service we find him at the time when the ancient Neapolitan Government

Marshal and Hereditary Marshal of England that his Ancestors have been most 
respectably settled on their own Estates at Holm in Spaldingmore and Hook in 
the West Riding of the County of York for more than two Centuries past as 
proved by the family Evidences now in his possession and that his Ancestors have 
intermarried with the heirs general of Mitchell of Hook and other ancient and 
respectable families in the said County and have long borne for Coat Armour Gules 
on a bend Argent three Eagles displayed Sable and for Crest An Eagle with two 
Heads displayed Crowned but on a due search being made in the Heralds College 
he the said Frank Sotheron does not find them recorded there to his family and 
being unwilling to continue the use of them without lawful authority requested 
the favor of His Grace's Warrant for Our granting the said Arms with such varia- 
tion as may be necessary to be borne by him and his descendants and by his four 
Sisters Lucy, Elizabeth and Mary Catherine Sotheron, Spinsters and Henrietta 
Wife of the Reverend William Dealtry of Wigginton in the County of York, 
Clerk, and their descendants according to the Laws of Arms : And forasmuch as 
the said Earl Marshal did by Warrant under his hand and seal bearing date the 
twenty fourth day of May instant authorize and direct Us to grant and exemplify 
such Armorial Ensigns accordingly : Know ye therefore that We the said Garter 
and Norroy in pursuance of His Grace's Warrant and by virtue of the Letters 
Patent of Our several Offices to each of Us respectively granted do by these Pre- 
sents grant exemplify and confirm unto the said Frank Sotheron the Arms fol- 

was displaced by the French army, and the throne of that kingdom usurped by Joseph Buonaparte. 
In this state of affairs the very prudent arrangements made by Capt. Sotheron prevented the mis- 
chief that would otherwise have ensued. On the 1st of August, 1811, Capt. Sotheron was pro- 
moted to the rank of Rear -Admiral. On the vacancy occasioned in the representation of Notting- 
hamshire by the resignation of Lord William Bentinck in 1814, Bear-Adm. Sotheron was unani- 
mously elected M.P. for that county in conjunction with Capt. Lord Newark, now" (1839) "Earl 
Manvers, and thus was presented the novel spectacle of a county represented in the senate by two 
naval officers. In 1816 " (? 1806), " on the demise of his eldest brother Col. Sotheron, who served 
for the borough of Pontefract in several Parliaments, Bear-Adm. Sotheron, as heir-at-law, suc- 
ceeded to the family estates in the counties of York and Nottingham. He was advanced to the 
rank of Vice- Admiral in 1819, and to that of full Admiral in 1830. He continued to represent 
Nottinghamshire until the dissolution in 1831, when, in consequence of his opposition to the Beform 
Bill, he was successfully opposed by John Evelyn Denison, esq." (now the Bight Hon. Viscount 
Ossington of Ossington and formerly Speaker of the House of Commons), " one of the present" 
(L839) " members for the Southern Division of that county. Adm. Sotheron was twice married.

The only known quarterings in the above shield are 1st and 6th, Ashburner, argent a fesse 
between three crescents gules (the Indian branch carrying three mullets or, on the fesse, for difference) ; 
2nd, Moulson (or Moulton), gules a chevron coinponee or and sable (left argent with the lines of 
division, in the oil-painting mentioned below) between three mullets of the second ; 5th, Hargrove 
of Hargrove (yel Hargrave), Cheshire, argent a griffin segreant per fesse gules and sable, beak and 
claws or. As to what families the 3rd and 4th quarterings belonged I am unable to say. They 
were, however, brought in by the Moulsons, and I think one of them will be for Rosengrave (pro- 
bably the 3rd), the 4th being like some of the early Plantagenet coats, and intended, no doubt, for 
Orbs. According to the letter of the French Commodore Moulson, from Dunkerque, 1788, to his 
cousin, Mrs. Mary Ashburner (nee Moulson), the Moulsons in early times married the coheirs of 
Rosengrave, Orbs, and Hargrave, which is corroborated, as far as I can see, by a well-executed old 
oil-painting of the quarterings, crest, and motto, of about the reign of Queen Anne, formerly in the 
possession of the late Mr. George Ashburner of Kensington, and from which I copied these Moulson 
quarterings many years since. Ormerod's 'Cheshire' describes the same quarterings as existing on 
the old tomb of a Moulson of Wheelocke, near Sandbach, and on referring to Burke's ' General 
Armoury,' I find the 2nd and 5th quarters to be the coats of the families I have mentioned. The 
direct ancestor of the Moulsons was Lord Mayor of London in 1<>34 ; but although Commodore 
Moulson refers in his letter to a pedigree in the College of Arms, I have been unable, after a tolerably 
long search, assisted very kindly by the late York Herald, Tho. Wm. King, Esq., F.S.A., to discover 
either the Mayor's name or the slightest mention of the names of Moulson, Rosengrave, Orbs, or 
Hargrave, — all anciently well-known Cheshire families, excepting Orbs, of which I know nothing. 
A very old roll of the Ashburners was in existence some years since, and although going back to 
the days of the Plantagenets, 1 do not remember among its emblazonry any other quarterings for 

The griffin crest is for Moulson, no doubt taken from the Hargreave coat, 'and the Moulson 
motto is that engraved at the foot of these quarterings.— T. H.

f The wife of George Bruere, senr., was Mary, third daughter of Alexander Weld, Esq., of 
Widbury, by his first wife. Mr. Weld married secondly the mother of Sir James Etheridge, hence 
arises the mistake made in the Branscomb entry, that Sir James and Mrs. Bruere were half-brother 
and sister.

There are no entries in the ancient vol. of the Gwennap Eegisters earlier than 
1658, but in the first page of the book is written, — 

Eichard Harris Vicar, d. 16 th May. 1646. Vicar since 1608. 

Among other entries of the Harris family are the following, — 

14 May, 1646. 

The said Eichard Harrys at the time of 
his departure being in perfect memory, 
gave and bequeathed unto Edward Noy and 
and to Ann his . . . ten pounds a piece.

* This Mr. John Harris was in the Cornwall Militia. His Commission as 
Lieutenant to the company of his brother-in-law, Captain William Beauchamp, 
bearing the date 1714. is still preserved by Sir Frederick Williams of Tregullow, 
Baronet. Both Mr. Harris and his father appear, from family papers, to have lived 
at St. Daye, in Gwennap, and there is therefore good reason for assuming them 
to have derived from the Eichard, son of John Harrys of St. Issye, mentioned in 
the preceding will. 

Hals in his 'History of Cornwall' mentions Eichard Harris, Gent., of Trevance, 
in the parish of St. Issye, who married Vivyan of Tollskiddy, his father, Moyle. 

There is at Tregullow a deed of release " between Elizabeth Harris Widow on 
the one side, and Edward Harris of Gunwalloe Gent. John Harris. Catherine Head 
wife of Isaac Head Esq re controller of H.M. Customs in the Islands of Scilly, and 
Susanna Williams, wife of Michael Williams of Gwennap. Gen*, children of Henry 
Harris of Gwennap. Gent, recently deceased, who died intestate, on the other 
side," which corroborates these latter entries. The armorial bearings on the seals 
attached to this document are identical with those of Harris of Eadford. It is 
dated 1768. M. W. 


American Genealogy. — In the British Museum there is a work called " Me- 
morials of the Descendants of William Shattuck, the Progenitor of the Families in 
America that have borne his name. By Lemuel Shattuck, Member of the Mass. 
Historical Society, and of the American Antiquarian Society, etc. etc. Boston : 
Printed by Dutton and Wentworth for the Family, 1855." 

On pages 57 and 58, it states that "he was born in old England in 1621, and 
died at Waterton, Mass., 1672," and that " his exact origin and early history are 
involved in obscurity. The first lot of land granted to him is described upon the 
records as follows, 1640 : ' William Chattuck, an Homstall,' " etc. etc. 

The work is written to ascertain the English origin of the family, and contains 
a perfect pedigree of the descendants of this William Chattuck down to 1855. If 
the " legal personal representative " will write me as below, he " may hear of 
something to his advantage," and that, too, not merely in a genealogical point of view. 

Castle Bromwich, Warwickshire. C. ChattOCK. 

Freer Pedigree. — A short pedigree of this family appeared some time ago in 
' Miscellanea Genealogica.' In it, Helen Blair, wife of the Eev. Geo. Freer (c. 
1660-1720), is stated to have been " of a good family in Perthshire." She was 
a daughter of James Blair of Ardblair, and died 11th December, 1751 (see ■ Fasti 
Ecclesise Scoticanse,' part iv. p. 805). There is a tolerably good account of the 
Blairs of Ardblair in ' Douglas's Baronage.' Who is the present representative ? 

F. M. S. 

Deall: Arthur. — Samuel Deall was born at Staines, Middlesex County, in 
1713. He had a brother William, who died at Staines, in March or April, 1775. 
Samuel came to New York prior to 1758, in which year he married, in New York, 
Elizabeth Arthur, daughter of [Francis] Arthur, of Bisley, Gloucestershire, Eng. 

Any information respecting the origin and pedigree of these two families, or 
either of them, is solicited by John J. Latting.

Henry Wright (p. 188). — Pedigrees of the Wrights of Essex may be found 
in the Harl. MSS. 1083, fol. 63 ; 1432, fol. 131b ; 1541, fol. 3 and 56 ; 1542, fol. 
86. But nothing occurs in either of them about Henry Wright. 

Lawrence Wright, M.D., who possessed Henham Hall, was the father of Sir 
Henry Wright of the same place. The Doctor died October 3, 1657, and, with 
Mary, his wife, lies buried in the church of South Weald, co. Essex. His son and 
heir Henry was created a baronet June 11, 1660, and died February 5th, 1663, 
aged 27 years. He married Anne, daughter of Lord John Crew of Stene (which 
lady died September 27, 1708), by whom he had Sir Henry, who died (in 1681) 
at the age of nineteen, unmarried ; and Anne, who, upon her brother's death, 
became a great heiress. She married first to Edmond, son of Sir Eobert Pye, of 
Farringdon, in Berkshire, and afterwards to William Eider, Esq. Sir Henry, the 
first baronet, was buried with his father. Blomefield has given an elaborate 
pedigree (vol. i. p. 545) of the Wrights of Kilverstone, co. Norfolk, but no men- 
tion is made of this Sir Henry Wright, whose ancestors were of Kelvedon Hatch, 
co. Essex (see Morant's 'Hist, of Essex,' vol. i. p. 62; vol. ii. p. 568: Wright's 
4 Hist, of Essex,' vol. i., under Dagenham). The arms borne by this family are 
given in the sixth edition of Guillim's 'Heraldry,' p. 262, — "Azure two bars 
argent, in chief three leopards' heads or." These arms were borne by Sir Henry 
Wright of Dagenham, and also by Sir Benjamin Wright of " Cranham Hall." 
I think it should be -Henham Hall, in the same county of Essex. " Argent two 
bars azure, on a chief of the second three leopards' faces of the field, was borne by 
the name of Wright." It was allowed and confirmed by William Flower, Nor- 
roy, December 18, 1583, and in the 26 of Eliz. to Eichard Wright, Serjeant-at- 
Arms, the son of John Wright of Bickley, in the County Palatine of Chester. 
Guillim refers to a MS. of grants in Ashmolean Lib., No. 844. A pedigree of 
this branch of the family is given in Ormerod's ' History of Cheshire,' vol. ii. p. 
389. W. Winters.

Domina Matilda who died June 10 is probably Maud d. & h. of William de la 
Carville of Isham, who married Robert Holdenby of Holdenby, and was mother

Communicated by T. P. Taswell-Langmead, B.C.L., of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister-at-law. 

* This christian name is erroneously entered as "James," instead of "William." See next note. 

f The bnptism of James Tazewell is thus entered in the parish register of Buckland Newton : — 
' Julii 1588. Vicesimo quinto die mensis prsedicti baptizatus fuit Jacobus Tanswell (sic) filius 
Will' mi Tanswell de Buckland." His first wife Mary, daughter of — Hunt of Forston, Char- 
minter, Co : Dorset, died in 1659, and was buried at Haselbury Bryan, Co : Dorset, in the registers 
of which parish is the following entry : — " Burials, a.d. 1659. Maria uxor Jacobi Tazwell Gen. 
obiit 19 Jan"." In the " Autobiography of William Taswell, D.D.," (his grandson), published 
by the Camden Society in 1852, it is stated (p. 8) : — 

" In the same year, 1662, ray grandfather James Taswell of Dorsetshire came to Town, aged 
74, born in the year 1588. Staying a little time with us only, he soon returned into the country, 
and took his own servant to wife : he begat a son the same year of her. He departed this life 
1663. On the day he was celebrating his wife's birthday, he drank too much wine, which threw 
him into a fever." 

By his will (proved in the Court of the Archdeacon of Dorset in 1663), in which he is described 
as " James Taswell of Haselbury Bryan;" he gives " to my sonne James Taswell one shilling •" " to 
my daughter Mary Young one shilling;" "to my kinsman Ttalphe Taswell one sute of aparrell ; " 
" to my kinsman Richard Taswell one sute of aparrell ; " " all the rest of my goods moveable and 
unmoveable I give and bequeath unto my wife Aner whom I do make executrix of this my last will." 

It appears, by Hutchins' History of Dorset, that the Hunt family held the Manor of Forston. 
On the death, in 1683, of Anne, daughter and heiress of Henry Hunt, Esq., of Forston, the 
estate descended to her issue by her second husband, George Browne, Esq., a younger son of the 
Brownes of Frampton. 

X James Tazewell of London Merchant, and of Limington Manor, Somerset, married (1) 
26 March 1649, Elizabeth daughter of — Upsal of Co : Dorset, (born 1624— died 1667), and (2) 
in 1673, Elizabeth daughter of John Kingsmill of Andover, Esq. (She died July, 1702, s.p.) He 
died 26 March, 1683. 

In his son's autobiography (p. 25) we read : — 

"Not long after the barbarous murther of Charles the First, James Taswell married Elizabeth 
Upsal, a person accomplished as to her person, sensible, and of a very good extraction. He was a 
considerable merchant in the Isle of Wight, and connected himself to her March 26, 1649." 

Id. p. 7. " About the end of March 1655, James Taswell Esq., retiring from the Isle of Wight 
with his wife and three children settled at a sea-port Town, Brithamston, Sussex, where his mother- 
in-law, my grandmother, lived." . ... "In June 1656, we took a journey to London. After 
residing in an house for the space of a year, in which time all of us were seized with the small-pox 
(1657), about the middle of summer we took a very grand house in Bear Lane near the Custoni- 

Id. p. 15. " 1673, my father married Elizabeth Kingsmill, sister of one of the. same name, 
with a fortune of £600, at Andover." 

In 1663, James Tazewell, who was seised of the Manor of South Brent, Somerset, and of other 
lands in that county, and in the adjoining county of Devon, purchased the Manor and Advowson 
of Limington, Co : Somerset. He rebuilt the Manor House at Limington in 1672. The house was 
again rebuilt about thirty years since, and only a wing of the old building erected in 1672 is 
now standing. A stone with the name of " James Tazewell," arms, and date 1672, which formerly 
appeared on the front of the old Manor House, is now in the possession of Mr. T. P. Taswell- 

§ Besides the children enumerated in the pedigree, James Tazewell had : — Maria, born 29 Dec. 
1649, died aged 8 months ; Elizabeth, born 7 July 1653, and died soon after ; Ann, born Nov., 
1659, died soon after; and Maria, born Feb. 1667, died soon after. 

Of the children mentioned in the pedigree, James the eldest son and heir, born 20 Feb. 1650, 
succeeded his father in the Manor of Limington. He married Ann daughter of — Kingsmill, Esq. 
and had three sons and three daughters. The eldest son James, died s.p. The second, John Taswell 
of Ch : Ch : Oxford, M. A., was vicar of Chewton, Somerset, (a living in the patronage of the Kingsmill 
family), and died without male issue. The third, William Tazewell, bap : 17 July 1690, emigrated 
to Virginia, America, in 1715, where he married in 1721, Sophia, daughter of Henry Hermanson by 
his wife Gertrude daughter of Col 1 . Southey Littleton. He died in 1752, leaving issue, now repre- 
sented by John Nivison Tazewe l, Esq., of Norfolk, Virginia, U.S.A., son of the late Littleton 
Waller Tazewell, Governor of Virginia. 

William Taswell, D.D.,the second son, born 1 st May 1652, was an eminent scholar and divine. 
Enrolled a King's Scholar of Westminster School, 1667 ; elected Student of Ch : Ch : Oxford, 
1670 ; Professor of Greek, 1681 ; Rector of Woodnorton, Norfolk, 1691 ; Rector of S l . Mary 
Newington, Surrey, 1698 ; Rector of S*. Mary's, Birmingham, 1723. He died in 1731 and was 
buried in the Chancel of S l . Mary's Newington. He married 21 May, 1695, Frances daughter and 
co-heir of Edward Lake, D.D., Archdeacon of Exeter, Chaplain and Tutor to the Princesses Mary 
and Anne, daughters of James II., and had issue. He is now represented by his descendant the 
Rev d . George Taswell, M.A., of B. N. C, Oxford. 



Stephen Tazewell, the third son, born Dec r . 1656, resided at Limington, and married Barbara, 
daughter of John Pinny of Hardington, Co: Somerset, Esq , (born 1673 — died 18 June, 1706). He 
died in 1742, leaving issue, inter alios, a son William Taswell, born 6 March, 1705, now represented 
by his descendants the Rev d . Stephen Taswell Taylor-Taswell, of S 1 . Mary Hall, Oxford, B.A., and 
Thomas P. Taswell-Langmead, of S l . Mary Hall, Oxford, B.C.L. 

Thomas, the fourth son, born 20 April, 1663, died at the age of 9 months. 

Of the daughters, Elizabeth, born 14 Sept. 1654, died in 1703, unmarried. 

Mary, born 6 May, 1658, died young. 

Hannah, born 30 Jan? 1660/, married — Lockyer, of Limington, and had issue.

American Genealogy. — Many readers will be interested in hearing that my 
former query under this heading has been instrumental in supplying a link 
missing for some two centuries and a half, and may probably lead to the discovery 
of another of a much earlier date. I should now be very pleased to hear of or 
from any one in America of the name of Chad, Chads, or Shad. The latter has 
appeared in lists of American surnames, and I believe is synonymous with Chad ; 
and if so, it is a very curious coincidence that C should have interchanged with 
8 in America, both in Chattuck and Chad, as in the Philological Society Papers 
for 18G5, p. 47, it is stated that " in the new American Dictionary projected by 
Franklin in 17G8, the soft sound of c is supplied by s." One of this family I know 
' died in America about the year 1739.

Compiled from old family documents, etc., in possession of Edward Orpen Palmer, 
Killowen, Kenmare, Co. Kerry, Esquire, the present Head of the Family, by 
his son, the Rev. A. Henry Herbert Palmer, of MonJcstown, Co. Dublin. 

fteto* ®i)omm palmer. 

Concerning the Rev d Thomas Palmer, founder of the Palmer family of Kenmare, 
Co. Kerry, the following are the chief particulars recorded or known.* He was 
(it is stated) for some time in early youth in some way connected with or attached 
to Anne Hyde, wife of J ames II. At a subsequent period, the date of which is not 
exactly ascertained, he was admitted to Holy Orders, and for some reasons, only 
matter of conjecture, came over to Ireland and cast in his lot with the English 
settlers in that country. His name appears in the Visitation Bookf of Diocese of 
Cloyne Oct. 27 th 1609, as Vicar of Clonfert and Tullilease and Rector of Knock- 
temple. In 1670, as appears from a document in Rolls Office Court of Chancery, 
Dublin, he was appointed through royal favour to the Crown livings of Kilmare 
(now Kenmare), Kilgarvan, Templenoe, Kilcroghan, and Cahirciveen (Diocese of 
Ardfert and Aghadoe). He was appointed to the commission of the peace for the 
County Kerry on 15 th May 1679. He was also Judge of the Admiralty Court of 
Munster, and of the Consistorial Court of Ardfert and Aghadoe. The most pro- 
minent event of his life was the defence of the Fort of Killowen, commonly called 
the " White House,;};" by the Protestant colony of Kenmare under his command, 
united with Richard Orpen, Esq., agent to Sir William Petty, against some 
thousands of the Irish forces of James II. Harassed by repeated raids of the 
native Irish on their cattle, farms, and homesteads, the whole Protestant population 
of the district, in fear of their lives and unable to procure any help, resolved to 
bring their families to a common place of safety, and associated! themselves as a 
garrison of the fort with its outworks under the leadership of their Rector and 
his son-in-law Mr. Orpen. They expected an English army to land immediately 
in Munster for the rescue of the various colonies of Protestants scattered through- 
out the province, but the desired relief never came ; and abandoned to their fate 
in a remote corner of the island, after a brief but stout resistance, during a siege 

* There is some doubt as to his parentage, which is strange in the case of a man, as he was, of 
some note, and only to be explained by t v e almost total severance from kindred which emigration 
to Ireland in those times involved. It has been asserted that he is identical with the person named 
in the following extract from the Admission Book of Christ's Church College, Cambridge. " A.D. 
1658, Julii 10 th Thomas Palmer Johannis Leicestriensis filius, natus apud Harborough, ibidemque 
educatus sub ferula Mag" Berry, annos natus 14. Admissus est sizator sub Mag rw Burnet, 
spondente Mag™ Pepper." And who took his B.A. degree in 1662, and his M.A. in 1668. If so 
he comes of a very old family mentioned in a.d. 1447. Vid. Burton's History of Leicestershire, 
published 1623, pp. 54, 94, 95, 127. 

But the belief has always obtained that he was the eldest son of a distinguished family in 
Northamptonshire, said to have died young, but did not. He came to Ireland owing, it is supposed, 
to some domestic difference, and chose to live and die forgotten in another land. 

Any information or useful suggestion touching this matter will be gladly received. H. Herbert - 
Palmer, Clk. Monkstown, Co. Dub. 

f Vid. Dr. Brady's "Records of Cork," vol. ii. page 129. The entry in V. B. is as follows: 
" 1669, Oct. 27 th Thomas Palmer, V. Clonfert & Tullilease. & R. Knocktemple, per mortem 
Roberti Booth." His successor in these livings was Richard Davies, July 21 st , 1671.

on the lands of Killowen in possession of E. Orpen Palmer Esq., the present head of the family. 

§ The following is a verbatim copy of the oath. " Association. W e the undersigned do hereby 
in defence of our lives and religion associate ourselves in a body within the Fort of Killowen 
against the enemies of the Protestant Church and will from time to time to the utmost of our 
power behave ourselves according to all such directions as shall be given us by Tbomas Palmer 
and Richard Orpen for our management and safety until we are received into command of His 
Highness the Prince of Orange. In testimony whereof we have taken our oaths upon the Holy 
Evangelists and put our hands and seals this last day of January 168f ." 



which has attracted much notice,* they capitulated on honourable terms. These 
terms were however shamefully brokenf by the enemy, and the brave but unhappy 
garrison, plundered, deceived, and crowded (only eight families of skilled iron- 
workers being held back by the Irish) into two small vessels, only succeeded at last 
in making their way to Bristol on March 25th, after much hardship and in sorry 
plight Mr. Palmer, it would seem, after a short stay in Eugland, came back to his 
old home and work at Kilmare with his little band of settlers, and spent the 
remaining tenj years of his life and ministry among them.§ It was during this 
period, if not before, (Sir B. Burke and Dr. Brady erroneously, it is thought, say 
1052) that he obtained several grants of land in estate, also some on lease renew- 
able for ever, embracing the present town of Kenmare and surrounding district, 
which in 1770, through legal ignorance on the part of the then possessor, became 
the property of the Earl of Shelburne. || 

Rev. Thomas Palmer was married twice. First, in 1G69 to Jane Mary, d. of 
Sir William (or Sir Richard) Aldworth of Duhallow or Newmarket, Co. Cork.

X Rev. T. Palmer must have been dead in 1702, for his son in that year leased ground at 
Kenmare to Government for site of barracks. All the early parish Records of Kenmare were 
unhappily destroyed in a fire at the Rectory in early part of present century. 

§ Much interesting information is contained in another rare pamphlet, also by Richard Orpen, 
in Library of Trinity College, Dublin, (marked, "Pamphlets" P. pp. 8.) entitled "The London 
Master or the Jew detected." It gives an account of the fraudulent and wilful shipwreck of a ship 
called the " Laurel " in the River Kenmare, — and contains a solemn statement by Rev d Thomas 
Palmer " in verbo sacerdotis " — giving his opinion on the matter — relating also a grievous calamity 
which the shelter and lodging he gave to the shipwrecked sailors with their goods brought on 
himself, viz. the burning and robbing of his own house at the " Sound," Kenmare, at midnight, 
January 29 th 1693 by the " Tories." 

His life was saved on that occasion by the influence which his wife Julia, a native Chieftain's 
daughter, possessed with the Irish Robbers, but documents of the greatest value and interest were 
burned and lost.

Killmare," Edition 1852. — Also Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland 1846, sub voce " Killowen." 
Reference is also made to him and M r . Orpen, and a great number of Nobility, Dignitaries and Gentry 
by Archbishop King, who gives at length an Act of Attainder passed against them in the Irish. 
Parliament, from which the following is an extract:— "An Act for the Attainder of divers Rebels, 
and for preserving the Interest of Loyal Subjects. Humbly beseech your Majesty, the Commons 
in this present Parliament assembled, That whereas a most horrible Invasion was made by your 
unnatural Enemy the Prince of Orange, invited thereunto and assisted by many of your Majesty's 
rebellious and traiterous subjects .... having likewise to obtain their wicked ends raised and 
levied open Rebellion and War in several places in this Kingdom, and entered into Associations 
and met in Conventions in order to call in and set up the said Prince of Orange. „ . . That it 
may be enacted . . . that the persons hereafter named, being Persons who have notoriously 
joyned in the said Rebellion and Invasion, and some of which are upon Indictments condemned, 
some executed for High Treason, and the rest ran away, or abscond, or are now in the actual service 

of the Prince of Orange against your Majesty (viz.) Richard Orpin of 

Gorthinlinny Gent Tho. Palmer of Gortaglass Clerk, &c. all late of the county Kerry 

every of them shall be deemed, taken & reputed, and are hereby declared and 

adjudged Tray tors, and shall suffer such pains of Death,Penalties, & Forfeitures, respectively as 
in cases of High Treason are accustomed." 

Provided however, the Act proceeds, that if the attainted Persons surrendered themselves to 
stand their trial by the tenth day of August, 1689, and shall be acquitted, that then and in such 
case they should be freed from the above pains and penalties. Vid. Archbishop King's " State of 
the Protestants of Ireland under the late K. James s Government."— WW. Append. 1-17.

* Rev. George Palmer was Rector of several parishes — viz. Killorglin, Knockane, Kiltallough, 
Kilgarrinlander, also of Currens worth about £200 per ann. (all in the Diocese of Ardfert and 
Aghadoe.) They were crown livings grouped together — and he was presented to them by the 
Duke of Dorset in 1735, at request of Primate Boulter. 

f The following is the passage alluded to. "There is a favour I have to ask your Grace which 

is that your Grace would be pleased to order M r . George Palmer to be presented 

to the said Rectories. M r . Palmer is a clergyman of a very fair character in my diocese, and was 
born in that neighbourhood, or he would hardly have the courage to think of removing into 
Kerry. The granting of this request will be esteemed an obligation by him who is, My Lord, 
&c." — Vid. Boulter's Letters, vol. ii. p. 106-109. a.d. 1770. Before his promotion to Kiltallagh, 
etc., George Palmer had held the office of Priest Vicar Choral in Armagh Cathedral, his appoint- 
ment dating February, 1723, on a vacancy caused by the resignation of Rev. William Martin 
(Regist. Lindsay, fol. 83). He was succeeded by Rev. Richard May, whose appointment is dated 
November 28, 1735. (Vid. Cotton's Fasti, vol. iii. p. 67).

f Greenhaigh Castle was built by the Earl of Derby apud 1490, and was destroyed by order of 
Parliament in 1050. It was occupied for a time by a branch of the Sherbourne family. 




Communicated by W. W. E. Wynne, Esq. of Peniarth. 

In drawing up the following Pedigree, the compiler has not entered into the 
earlier descent of the Geraldine race from Other, a possessor of many Lordships 
in Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Middlesex, and Wilts, in the time of 
Edward the Confessor, nor the question of his alleged descent from the Gherardeni, 
ancient Lords of Tuscany. They are to be found in many of the peerages, 
and, in particular, in that valuable account of his own family by the present 
Marquis of Kildare. 

Such as this Pedigree is, it has been compiled with much care ; as to that part 
of it prior to the settlement in Wales of a branch of the Geraldines, from the 
best historical evidences which the compiler could obtain, and after the settlement 
of that branch in Wales, from a Tnx Eoll of the county of Merioneth of 1293-4 
in the Public Record Office, Ministers' Accounts of the Crown during a long series 
of years, in the same Repository, the family deeds, and parochial Registers, and 
all these confirming the original Heraldic Visitation by Lewis Dwnn, in the 
Hengwrt collection, and many other pedigrees in the same collection and elsewhere. 

" It has been said that the three most noble names in Europe are : the De 
Vere's of England, the EitzGerald's of Ireland, and the Montmorency's of 
Prance." (See Quarterly Review for April, 1860, p. 335.) Of these families, 
the first is extinct, the second yet occupies its former high position, as we believe 
does the third, in France. 

It is well known to those conversant in Welsh history and genealogy, that 
a branch of the noble sept of the Geraldines, or FitzGeralds, — Osborn, sur- 
named "Wyddel" (the Irishman),— settled in Merionethshire in the thirteenth 
century, and was founder of some of the most distinguished families in that 
county. Of these, the powerful houses of Yaughan of Corsygedol, and Wynne of 
Ynysymaengwyn and Maesyneuadd, are extinct ; the Wynnes of Peniarth continue 
to flourish. 1 

Some of the members of the Geraldine line settled in Wales have been dis- 
tinguished for their literary attainments. Of these, Cadwalader Wynne, rector of 
Llanenddwyn, who died in 1684, translated from Latin into English, a work very 
scarce in its English form, entitled An Antidote against Sorrow, published in 1650. 
A more eminent literary member of this house was the well-known " Bardd Cwsg," 
the Rev. Ellis Wynne, rector of Llanvair-juxta-Harlech, who died in 1734 ; and 
since his time lived his relation, William Wynne, rector of Llangynhaval, a dis- 
tinguished Welsh poet of the eighteenth century. Amongst the warriors of the 
house may be mentioned the celebrated David ap Ievan ap Einion, Constable of 
Harlech Castle during the Wars of the Roses, who is so honourably referred to in 
the Life of Lord Herbert of Cherbury. (See Life of Lord Herbert, pp. 7, 8, 
Strawberry Hill edition ; and Pennant's Tour, vol. ii. p. 131, edition 1784, 4to ; 
also Hist, of the Gwedir Family, 8vo edition, p. 76.) 

It may be added that it is probable that Osborn Wyddel was much concerned 
in the building of the very interesting and beautiful church of Llanaber near 

W. W. E. Wynne. 

VOL. I. 






Showing how Osborn, styled by the "Welsh heralds, " "Wyddel" (the Irishman), 
was connected with the Geraldines of Desmond, if the belief of the late Sir 
"William Betham, Ulster-King-at-Arms, after a search among his voluminous 
Geraldine papers, was correct, that Osborn was a son of John Eitz Thomas Eitz 
Maurice Eitz Gerald de Windsor, the first Lord of Decies and Desmond. It is, 
indeed, improbable that he was a son of any other Geraldine of Desmond. He 
could not have been son of an earlier one, and it is very unlikely that he was 
of a later. 

" Ye Geraldines ! ye Geraldines ! how royally ye reigned 
O'er Desmond broad and rich Kildare, and English arts disdained ; 
Your sword made knights, your banner waved, free was your bugle call, 
By Glyn's green slopes and Dingle's tide, from Barrow's banks to Youghal. 
What gorgeous shrines, what Brehon lore, what minstrel feasts there were 
In and around Maynooth's 2 strong keep and palace-filled Adare ! 
But not for rite or feast ye stayed when friend or kin were pressed ; 
And foemen fled when { Crom a boo 3 ' bespoke your lance in rest."

1 It may be added, that the Rev (1 . John Wynne, who has recently resigned the vicarage of 
Llandrillo, in Edernion, is lineally descended from Osborn. 

2 Maynooth was one of the strongholds of the Kildare branch of the Geraldines. 

3 " Crom a boo " was the war-cry of the Kildare, C£ Shanet a boo," of the Desmond line of this sept. 

4 According to Sir W m . Betham, it was in 1260 ; in Smith's Kerry, it is said to have been in 
1261 ; by the Calendarium Genealogicum, published under the authority of the Master of the Rolls, 
it appears to have been upon the Vigil of S'. James the Apostle, 45 Hen. III. (24 July, 1261.) 

5 Sir W m . Betham did not think that he had the same strong grounds for his opinion that Osborn 
was a son of the first marriage as for believing that he was a son of John Fitz Thomas ; but he 
thought it more probable that he was so. 

6 The tradition is that Thomas Fitz Maurice was only nine months old when his father and 
grandfather were slain at the battle of Callan. The child was at Tralee, and on his attendants 
rushing out, alarmed at the intelligence, he was left alone in the cradle, when a tame baboon or ape 
took him up in his arms, and ran with him to the top of the tower of the neighbouring Abbey. 
After carrying him round the battlement, and exhibiting him to the frightened spectators, he 
brought the infant back to its cradle in safety. Thomas was in consequence surnamed " An Appagh " 
(in Irish), "Simiacus," or " the Ape." The Earls of Kildare, p. 21. 

7 M r . Vaughan, the eminent genealogist and antiquary of Hengwrt, in a MS. written in 1654, 
observes of Osborn, that he " was a nobleman's son of Desmond in Ireland, of y e famous family of 
the Giraldines." The arms as they have been borne by his lineal descendants, so long as there are 
examples of them extant, are precisely the same as those of the house of Desmond. The Crest too, is 
exactly similar to that of the sixth Earl of Desmond, with these slight exceptions : in the one, the 
boar is argent, in the other, ermine, in the one it is charged with a fret, in the other fretty. The 
crescent for difference, as borne by Osborn's descendants, would imply that he was a second son, 
but it is not known how long it has been used. It is so found in a MS. written by the well-kuown 
Welsh herald and genealogist, Griffith Hiraethog, between the years 1555 and 1562 inclusive. It 
is stated by Gutyn Owen, a genealogist of the fifteenth century, one of the most eminent of our 
Welsh genealogists, that Osborn accompanied from Ireland to Wales, Griffith, one of the sons of 
Ednyved Vychan, minister to Prince Llewelyn, Griffith being obliged to leave his country for a 
time, on account of some scandal regarding Llew.elyn's princess and himself, having emigrated to 
Ireland. This is very probable, as Griffith was connected by blood with the Geraldines.

10 It would seem probable from a deed at Peniarth, dated 20 April 28 Hen. VIII., that Ievan 
ap Rhys had another wife, by whom he had a son named Morgan, and a daughter, Katharine, 
married to William ap Madoc Vychan, by whom she had a son named Rytherch ; for by this deed, 
Katherine conveys to her son Rytherch, certain lands in Pennyved & Llandecwin, which had 
descended to her on the death of Morgan her brother. If by descended, descent in law, without a 
conveyance, is intended, she and Morgan could not have been own sister and brother to John ap 
Ievan, as the lands of Morgan would in that case have gone to J ohn, even under the law of gavelkind, 
then prevailing in Wales. 

11 Sir Robert Owen was M.P. for the Co. of Merioneth in the 5 th Pari, of Charles II. (1680-1), 
and for the Carnarvon Boroughs in the Convention Pari. (1688-9), and in the second (1689-90), 
and third (1691), Parliaments of W m . & Mary. He died M.P. for those Boroughs, 30 March 
1698-9, and was buried at Selattyn, April 11.
